That's his worst quality, hands down. Between his confidence and bland demeanor he's just not a good fit in NY.

I think he has decent skill, decent enough to play with Gabby, but Stepan has been more consistent. However, he's still young, and not used to such a rigorous schedule. I understand if E.C. swaps with Stepan throughout the year.

No one has stepped up to show they have more chemistry playing with Gaborik, than E.C. usually does. Stepan has been consistent all over the line-up. So I don't think he necessarily has more chemistry with Gaborik than Christensen. So, for what it is worth, E.C. is still the best fit with Gabby when Stepan isn't on that line. As much as we may not like to admit it.
