07:22 AM ET 09.10 | The day draws near, and it's unlikely New York's top center will be there for the unofficial start of the NHL season on Broadway. Barring an unexpected seismic shift in contract talks that have gone nowhere all summer between the Rangers and Derek Stepan, the unsigned 24-year-old restricted free agent center will not report [Wednesday] for his physical on the first day of training camp. Thus, Stepan, who has remained at his home in Wisconsin even as the Blueshirts have been holding organized, albeit informal, workouts and scrimmages at the club's practice rink over the last week, would become the second Ranger in the hard-cap era to miss time because of a contract dispute. ... Stepan is believed seeking a five- or six-year deal in the neighborhood of $5 million per while the Rangers are believed offering a two-year contract worth between $2.75-and-$3 million a year.

holdouts almost never end will for a player. Take a "bridge" deal and get into camp please derek. Then go out and have a great season and be better able to name your price. Holding out of camp is not a good idea physically.

18 goals, 26 assists and a plus 25 last year. Not bad at all. I'd pay the man the money.
