Here are FACTS:

In the 2008 draft, Stepan is by far the best forward drafted in the second round. And only 7 players drafted in the first round have more career NHL points.

There were 5 centers in the NHL in his age group who out scored Stepan last year.

Stamkos, Tavares, Eberle, Nugent-Hopkins, Seguin.

Of these players, only Stamkos, Tavares, and Eberle have more career points then Stepan.

Of these players, including Henrique and Seguin, only three of them play big roles for contending teams. Stepan is the third.
You're entitled to your opinion but there isn't a gm in the league who would take Derek Stepan over Adam Henrique or Ryan O'Reilly, and that is a fact!
