If Stepan comes flying out of the gate --- great... but most likely the kid needs a good full year of professional hockey to adjust and learn... There is really no rush - we aren't going anywhere anyway..
EC definately has some skill.. Last year he showed some real chemistry with
Gaborik on the first line. If he gets 55-65 points he would be a valuable
player. He is still young 26 years old with time to get better, good size and good skill.. he could be one of those rare gems picked up on waivers that just
needed to gain his confidence.. I think EC did enough last year to at least see what
he can do for a full year.

Or.. EC he could bust... and Stepan has a year of AHL development and then onto
the NHL in a year or so..
