There has not been alot of inconsiestant play there. I get tired of defending one of the best prospects we have had in years on this board. The kid is on pace to get 40-50 points as a 20 year old in this leauge, and thats not good enough for guys like you. There is no chance of keeping all the kids together and signing Richards. So lets do what we have done for the last 20 years and on the kids.
You have said it yourself. The kid is a PROSPECT. He has been playing some decent hockey this year, but you are asking him to go against the toughest defensemen in the NHL as a #1 center. Remember, Stepan has played 22 games as a Pro. TWENTY TWO. He needs to get experience and develop the correct way.

Adding Brad Richards would be huge for this club. Stepan has probably a 3% chance of ever being as good as Brad Richards, and this is giving full credit to Stepan.
