He certainly has 20-40 upside with more experience and the right linemates.
I think what your saying is best exemplified in some of Stepan's highlights where some of us sit there and go "...he can do that?"
Stepan for the most part is not a showy player, which is why when he makes a play with, for lack of a better term, brass balls, we're completely blown away.
Imagine if he played like that all the time.
