Similar college numbers it just makes me think that Stepan could make the jump much like stastny did at 20.

They are both high in hockey IQ and not gifted skaters but great passers.

Stastny is only 6' 204 according to nhl.com

Stepan is 6' 187, and in an interview with sather back in mid july "Stepan looks physically mature"

I'm sure Stastny was no bigger than that when he entered the league and managed 78 points. Not that Stepan could repeat that, but I wonder what his rookie year would be like with Frolov on the left a 30 goal man, and Gaborik on the right essentially at some point a 50 goal man...

Thoughts?
Lets not get ahead of ourselves. The dude hasn't played a game of pro hockey yet
