Stepan And Rangers Need To Find Some Middle Ground

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

It is likely Stepan will have to compromise a bit more in order to get this done. But the Rangers are going to have to be willing to compromise, too, and come closer to the asking price of $3.5M per than they have been willing.

If they don’t, Stepan will have a serious problem. But then, so will the Rangers. It’s lose-lose. The team needs him every bit as much as he needs the team.

Leverage is one thing. Losing games in a stubborn attempt to exercise it is something else altogether. The gap isn’t that significant. It’s time to get this done.
