Obviously not playing up to his potential, along with the rest of the team. 22 years old. We all know he is a bit streaky. When he starts to turn it on, what will be considered a success? 1.5ppg?

Are we going to be having another conversation in a month when he is playing well but he somehow isn't racking up the points?

3 points in 4 games.
Stepan is playing first line power play with stars such as Nash, Gaborik and Richards. He will get plenty of points on the first line power play.

The key is that Stepan needs to produce at even strength to make the 2nd line effective.
