Good evening New York Rangers fans! I hope you’re all enjoying the in between game days and are remembering the Rangers huge 5-0 blowout of the Edmonton Oilers last night. Tomorrow night the Rangers take on John Tortorella and the Vancouver Canucks, but before we even think about tomorrow, let’s focus on the poll today! Has Derek Stepan become the hottest member of the New York Rangers?
Now, while we agree Stepan is on the more attractive side, that’s not exactly what we mean. With 53 points at this point of the season Stepan is tied for the Rangers lead in points, he’s just passed a career high number of points (51 during the 2011-2012 season) and is on the rise as a top center in the National Hockey League. He currently has 17 points in the 16 games since the Olympic break and even tallied three assists in last night’s game against the Oilers and has really heated up. However, is he the hottest player on the roster at the moment? Players like Rick Nash, Ryan McDonagh and Henrik Lundqvist may have something to say about that.
However I don’t want to know what they have to say about it, I want to know what you guys think about it. Is Derek Stepan the hottest member of the New York Rangers heading into the playoffs?
