While I applaud you for doing your homework so to speak, the prospect of Stepan actually signing an offer sheet is slim to none, and slim just left town. Zero chance. Zilch. Step knows he's gonna get a big payout next season and he's already said he intends to be in camp, unlike Dubinsky. Everything I've read about these negotiations are that they've been very upbeat. The Rangers want Step and Step wants to be a Ranger. They're probably trying to shed a contract or two through trades so that they can get him more money in the short term so they're not paying out the ass in the long term. The thing fans typically don't understand about offer sheets is they're a two-way street. The player needs to want to sign with the team giving the offer sheet. And at this point, I simply don't see one with the pull to lure Stepan away.
