The trick there is even if he is incredible in camp and makes it impossible to send him down, can he sustain it for the whole season.

MDZ hit the wall last year after a terrific start. I like that they kept him up and gave him the experience.
It's not like Stepan is going to come in an be a more effective first or second line center than Christensen, Dubinsky, or Anisimov could be...Drury is a lock for the 3rd line center spot, and why put Stepan on the 4th when he could be the first line center in Hartford?
