from Katie Strang of ESPN NewYork,
New York Rangers center Derek Stepan, an unsigned restricted free agent, missed his second straight day of training camp Thursday, and a resolution to his contract situation does not appear imminent.
Rangers general manager Glen Sather said he has been in constant communication with Stepan's camp but that there is nothing to report.
Sather said Stepan has to understand the parameters and limitations that come with the salary cap in the new collective bargaining agreement. As of now, Sather said Stepan seems open to the team's standard two-year "bridge deal" but that the sides remain "too far apart" on dollars to make a deal.
