Thought Hagelin played well in offensive zone vs. Flyers. But when I see Stepan in the offensive zone, I keep saying -- When the hell is going to do something to contribute to the scoring? He just keeps going to the half boards and looks to drop the puck back to the point? This is a 2nd line center?
Yet he still only has 1 less point than our ostensible number one center despite playing 3 minutes less per game and almost 2 minutes less per game on the power play. So yes, that's your 2nd line center.
