He was, after all spending legitimate time on the 4th line in key situations last year, including some in the playoffs.
I think Stepan and Richards are nearly identical players. They're not noticeable when they're doing their job, and they both do it very well, but when they fail to do their job THEN people see it.

Stepan has been playing just fine the past three games, IMO. As has Richie. PPG for both.
