DEREK STEPAN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Derek Stepan’s Bozak-ian season

Derek Stepan is always a focal point of discussion for Ranger fans. He’s the teams 1C, but he’s not an elite center, so people think he’s better off as a 2C. Since returning from injury, Stepan has put up 14 points in 16 games, and has helped stabilize –prior to Derick Brassard’s mumps diagnosis– the […] The post Derek Stepan’s Bozak-ian season appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

The far-reaching impact of Derek Stepan’s return

It was just over four weeks ago that Chris Mueller was the third-line center for the New York Rangers. Feels like a lot longer than that, right? New York’s problems down the middle began when the team failed to bring in a replacement for Brad Richards and were exacerbated when Derek Stepan broke his fibula during training camp. […] The post The far-reaching impact of Derek...

Even with Stepan’s return to the lineup, the Rangers need to trade for a center

Brad Richard’s departure via buyout has left a void on the Rangers third line that they’ve never filled. Derek Stepan’s injury made their lack of center depth obvious, but his return doesn’t solve their original problem. The team does not have a third line center. Alain Vigneault seems resigned to giving Dominic Moore third line continue reading...

Rangers Injury Update: Derek Stepan returns to the lineup and makes an impact

The New York Rangers got some help back on the front-end as forward Derek Stepan returned to the lineup on Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

What Derek Stepan’s return means for New York Rangers

With the improved offensive production that the New York Rangers have experienced so far this season, it is hard to believe that top-line center Derek Stepan has yet to step on the ice. Stepan broke his fibula during the preseason and just resumed skating last week. Reports earlier this week noted the possibility of his return tonight against the Detroit Red Wings, but it appears...

Derek Stepan’s return raises Rangers line-up questions

As Derek Stepan has finally hit the ice with his team mates (albeit in a non contact jersey) the questions will now begin to focus more on where rather than when will Stepan play. Following the excellent instant chemistry Rick Nash has shown with Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello the logical thinking will be to […] The post Derek Stepan’s return raises Rangers line-up questions...

Derek Stepan’s injury is bad, but not insurmountable for the Rangers

Derek Stepan’s fractured fibula is the first of many challenges the Rangers will face this season. It sucks, but thankfully the timing of the injury doesn’t make his loss insurmountable. The four to six week diagnosis just isn’t long enough to hammer an early nail into the Rangers’ playoff coffin. If the timetable the Rangers released continue reading...

New York Rangers: How to deal with Stepan injury

The New York Rangers went into Wednesday’s conditioning tests with two openings at center. They ended with a third.

Stepan travels with the team to Montreal for game five

Been told Derek Stepan is accompanying the Rangers on the team flight to Montreal. No word yet on J.T. Miller. — Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) May 26, 2014 The fact Stepan is traveling with the team leaves open the possibility for him to return in game five on Tuesday night. Depending on how much longer this series lasts, I do think it is probable that he will play. His broken jaw...

The Rangers cannot afford to trade Derek Stepan

Derek Stepan needs to be kept in a Ranger jersey. It’s the time in hockey season where rumours are rampant. Ryan Callahan is apparently already half way out the door, the Rangers are apparently in bed with Martin St Louis and apparently Glen Sather will ‘check in’ on Ryan Kesler. All of these rumours have legs to some degree, so when you hear Derek Stepan’s name mooted as...
