stepans the guy i want to see make the team outa camp. ive seen nothing to make me believe he cant and i think he has a very real chance of success.
just not sold on this
this looks alot better
Wow, its nice to see some optimism out of you. Personally, I'm not sure any of the tryouts are going to hinder Stepan. Torts and Sather are both totally sold on the guy, and granted they may or may not be idiots, they're the possible idiots who have the power. I'd be downright shocked to see them put some burnt out NHLer looking for a comeback in the lineup over Stepan. The team needs a playmaking center more than anything at this point and he may have just fallen into their laps.
My only other comment is that if Stepan is getting top 6 minutes, I'd assume its going to be on the top line most of the time. He'd be the most "true" playmaker on the team, so it'd be make most sense to put him with the two big guns, plus it'd be a huge confidence booster being out there setting up Gabby every game.
