A couple things--it's not just Stepan's passing skills that make him a creative player--it's how he thinks the game and both these skills are well above average. And his ability to see the ice and understand where his teammates are helps him on the defensive side of the puck as well.

The second thing is he made decent improvement in his second year on face-offs and if that continues--and no reason why it shouldn't--eventually he should be at least in the 50-50 range.
