Get him some decent linemates and I say he'll be fine, especially since Sutter doesn't come across as the type to mix and match lines everyother game, which will allow them to gain some chemistry.
IF we also resign PENNER and/or sign a certain UFA that we recently played against while going back and forth to New Jersey ...
Stoll could center a 3rd line of something like PENNER/GAGNE - STOLL - WILLIAMS ? or something like that, which would be a decent 2nd line for most NHL teams
but certainly a hell of a 3rd line for ANY team.

Long shot but ...

BROWN - KOPITAR - PARISE
GAGNE - RICHARDS - CARTER
PENNER - STOLL - WILLIAMS
KING - FRASER - LEWIS
x's - CLIFFORD, NOLAN, RICHARDSON

and if not PARISE, we'd still be looking at ...

BROWN - KOPITAR - WILLIAMS
GAGNE - RICHARDS - CARTER
PENNER - STOLL - LEWIS
KING - FRASER - CLIFFORD
x's - NOLAN, RICHARDSON

However IF were looking at KING - STOLL - LEWIS as our 3rd line, then I wouldn't expect as much from Stoll ... would YOU ?
