07:29 AM ET 07.17 | The Rangers have re-signed Ryan McDonagh this offseason, but Derek Stepan hasn't yet been locked up. There is no progress regarding talks with [Stepan], sources report. Stepan, the club's first-line center, is a Group II free agent without arbitration rights. Absent pressure points (or an unexpected offer sheet), negotiations with Stepan could well go into September and perhaps bleed into training camp. The Rangers will likely need to carry 15 forwards on their opening roster because of the post-labrum surgery rehab that will sideline both Ryan Callahan and [Hagelin] for the first few weeks of the year. ... Because of the crunch that creates, the club appears to have just over $4M of cap space available for Stepan and [Mats Zuccarello].
