51 points in his 2nd season at the ripe old age of 21, isn't consistent? He can certainly stand to improve his skating but what were you expecting in his 2nd season? 70 points?

Stepan isn't a superstar player.

Edit: Only 3 players his age or younger were in the top 30: Tavares, Karlsson and Seguin. We can all agree he isn't in that class. Then from 60 down it was Ryan O'Reilly, Landeskog, RNH and Taylor Hall. In the top 90 that's 7 players that out produced Stepan at his age or younger. The only guy that wasn't a top 10 pick was O'Reilly, who was a 2nd round pick as well. Stepan is just fine in the development process.
