2014 Report Card: Derek Stepan

2014 Report Card: Derek Stepan

What to make of Derek Stepan's 57 point season and solid postseason. I think sometimes Rangers fans forget just how special Derek Stepan is and can be. We tend to get excited about our newer toys like Chris Kreider and by our other young guys that are already bona fide stars like Ryan McDonagh. But that often means we overlook Derek Stepan, who is still just 24 years-old.
