Here's Team USA coach Scott Gordon...
"I didn't realize how good Derek Stepan was," Gordon told Sporting News. "He was pretty impressive not just from a point standpoint but his hockey intelligence. He's the whole package."
Stepan had seven points (2g, 5a) in seven games for Team USA.
...what did Gordon say about Stepan's package? ;)
...i was also very impressed with the play of both McD and Kreider. Hope it will be a nice spring board for all three going into next year. Whether that's with the Rangers or at BC in the case of Kreider.
...h/t to Nick at the Rangers Tribune.
Love Stepan. LOVE. HIM. He's going to be something really amazing in a couple years, I just know it. (And hopefully, he'll still be on our side...lol)
yeah yeah, blah blah. you know what I'm watching right now. An eastern conf. finals game that does NOT feature the New York Rangers.
@AnnoyingJoe In 2-3 years you'll be watching a Stanley Cup finals game that does feature the New York Rangers.
