But he is playing well enough that, IMO, with the right linemates (speedsters Hagelin, Callahan) he's a good fit.

It certainly is a gamble, but freeing up Stepan for something we need, could be one worth taking.



The floor is open with this valid ? about what kind of return could Stepan/Stepan + command?

I would expect solid value in return.

Who do you think would be a good fit?
Miller is not close to ready. From the games I have seen he wouldn't even be in the top-5 players I would call up first.

He is 19 playing in the AHL. Let him develop properly.

If I am moving Stepan, I look for a player like Lucic, Kane or Pacioretty. Players teams don't move so it's a moot point.

The team has had A LOT of turnover already. Chemistry would be a major problem if more big deals are made and Stepan has the makings of a 1b center in the NHL. Why move him?
