Brooks thought Stepan was inadequate defensively? I really question whether he paid attention to the games very closely. Stepan more than held his own in the defensive zone. I was actually surprised at how solid he was defensively. Maybe he is not efficient faceoff wise, but what 20 year old center is? There are ways to protect that weakness.

I also dont see why Christensen is not a viable option for first line center. He struggled at times but made some really awesome plays. Why would we put Dubinsky back in the middle when he has been developed as a wing the past year or so? Torts doesn't like him as a center for some reason, I doubt he changes his stance on that.
