He's not a 1st line center and it doesn't look like he'll ever be able to develop into one.
There's a difference between untouchable and not wanting to trade. I don't want to trade Stepan but I don't think he should hold up a deal for someone who will keep an opponents defense at bay during the playoffs either.
Let me put it this way. Who centers the 2nd line if you trade Stepan?
