Rangers Still Trying To Sign Stepan

from Dan Martin of the New York Post,

One of the few question marks surrounding the Rangers before training camp opens is the status of restricted free-agent Derek Stepan.

Assistant general manager Jeff Gorton said he expects a deal to get done with the 23-year-old, but added the Rangers aren’t willing to break the bank to do it — especially with the salary cap being reduced this season.

“I think there’s always a way to make a deal,” Gorton said Thursday.

At a Yankee Stadium press conference for January’s NHL Stadium Series involving the Rangers, Islanders and Devils, Gorton said coming to an agreement with Stepan is “definitely difficult for us.”
