Derek Stepan is 22. When Jeff Halpern was 22 he was still playing in college. Halpern's career high is 46 points as a 27 year old in 03/04. Stepan had 45 points as a 20 year old rookie in 10/11.

I agree that Stepan has not been at his best (over a 4 game sample), but I don't see the comparison to Halpern.
