And for Stepan, He needs to be stronger with the puck, he sure got the skills, but in order to take the next step and face the toughest d-men in the league, he must improve.
Well the curious thing is that he commented before the camp that he has been working on getting more upper body strength. But that might have come at the cost of other assets, because he played in Finland during the lockout and he looked really slow. Granted, I saw only 5 or 6 games from him + these NHL games now, but still.
