What? 50 point player is already a 2nd liner.
I agree on skating. Stepan definitely needs to improve his skating a bit. At the end of the season and playoffs he looked like he was skating in mud. That obviously had a lot to do with fatigue because he went from playing 40-50 games to playing 82 games in back to back seasons plus playoff games last year.
