It's probably no more than 5 years. Is this team to wait around and hope Stepan somehow gets stronger and faster?
"Wait around?" Stepan hasn't completely figured out how to elevate his game for the playoffs with any consistency yet, which is why you seem to think what you think. That's because he's young. For most players, it comes with experience and this year has been great experience for him.
