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.
The thing that cencerns me (and others obviously) about stepan is "How much can he improve".

I like Stepan alot, but with his skill set I don't see him growing into much more than he is now. I saw the upside in DelZotto, I see in Kreider, but Stepan??
He's not a practicualrly fast or great skater, not overly physical.
He is a very heady player with a nice wrist shot and is a good passer. I don't see him growing into much more than a solid 45-50 point guy.
