And yes, he could be this year's Dubinsky. Another player people over-hyped, but is actually pretty mediocre. Hopefully he proves me wrong and starts producing, because he's going to need to be productive for this team to make any kind of a serious run.

Outside of the big 3, our forwards are pathetic, right now.
You really think Stepan is a 3rd line player? Really? 50+ points + PP and PK time on the 1st place team in the East and he is a 3rd liner? Oh and he was 21.

I'm sorry, I don't buy that. People get too high when players play well and too low when they aren't playing well.
