Than he accelerates and your like wow who is that kid...than he just sits back and disappears. Some of his assets are best in the class. Stephens has OHL speed and acceleration. His acceleration is his best asset from my view. The release on his shot is also extremely good. For long stretches of games he seems to just completely disappear and doesnt try to impose his will. Lots of extremes to his game right now. If Stephens brings it every shift, to me he is better than his team-mate Strome who is more well rounded and more consistent. Strome for those reasons might get drafted before Stephens. Id personally would take Stephens ahead of Strome and work with him on conditioning and consistancy.
Good analogy. That is the clear difference between Stephens and Konecney. Konecney brings it every shift where Stephens seems to play more of a defensive role and sits back to much. Needs a strong coaches message. Will make a difference for top 5 or top 10
