High intelligence and passing skill is definitely enough for some players. Especially when you add in solid two-way play. There have been players of his type before that have succeeded in the NHL, and have been key players for a long time. Players like Marc Savard, Paul Stastny, and Brad Richards.
I am basing it on a gut feeling; nothing more and nothing less.
Btw, Stepan is not on the same planet with the three players you mentioned!
