STLToday.com: The St. Louis Blues wanted to do a big roster change this summer but it appears the team may be the same next year. Besides T.J.

The Hockey News: New York Rangers center Derek Stepan has filed for salary arbitration. If Stepan is awarded a contract close to what Buffalo Sabres forward Ryan O’Reilly is making, it could force the cap-strapped Rangers to trade Stepan.

They could also retain him and move out one or two other players to free up cap space. Other options are to trade Keith Yandle or Rick Nash.
