Everyone is as surprised as I am that it’s taking this long for Derek Stepan to sign a contract. Me and Doud have spoken about it often and the point that he made that nobody else in the world has thought about is that he’ll be signed at the end of camp. Seems that that will be the case as we approach the Octoer 1st season opener for the NHL. Same shit happened with Penalty Kill (PK) Subban; Montreal stood firm as fuck with their 2 year bridge deal and what do you know the guy got his big payday extension durin the season last year. Subban also had the best year of his career in 2012-2013.
Nobody should panic yet, Sather said some pretty righteous things during the Edmonton intermission the other night and we all Derek heard it. It’s only a matter of time til we see Derek’s name in the headlines that he’s reached a new deal with the Rangers. Until then….
