there's two obvious ones
Stevens controlled the entire playstyle of opposing forwards and had many playoff series changing hits. Nobody carried the puck across the blue line into the zone if he knew Stevens was on the ice. I'd say that's pretty good control of a game.

Stevens was excellent offensively in his prime, and even once Lemaire convinced him to focus on defence, he was still very capable of contributing offensively too. He hovered around 25-30 points a season for the rest of his career, which is respectable during the dead puck era.
