I get that/ Good players find ways to get on the scoresheet even when they are not playing well. I will be the first person to say Stepan needs to play better. I am sure he knows that too.

I think you missed my point. Who cares if a 60 point player has 60 assists or 20 goals and 40 assists? Either way he is obviously involved in 60 goals for.
