Rangers' Derek Stepan: Unrewarded for prolific shooting early on
Stepan has no points and a minus-1 rating despite taking nine shots on goal through the season's first two games.
He's been highly active in the offensive end, but has gone unrewarded so far. Nonetheless, if the Rangers' top center continues being such a prolific shooter, he'll break through in no time. Considering he's posted 50-plus points in four consecutive non-lockout-shortened NHL seasons, it seems highly likely that Stepan will end up reaching that mark yet again this year, health permitting.
