I would love to see a little more Marc Savard in Derek Stepan in the sense that a bit more cockiness in his own playmaking ability and I think you would see a bit more production.
I would love to see Stepan start the season with Nash and Callahan and get off to a great start. I think that would boost his confidence a great deal.
Overall, I think that Stepan is a perfect #2 center. He's progressed as a player yera over year and you want that to continue.
Should be a big year for him. 3 points every 4 games would be awesome.
Stepan is one of those few players that never played in the AHL...i wonder how much better he would be at this point if he played some games in the AHL before he made the Rangers.
