So he's not fast and doesn't have a very good shot. He has proven his value even if he's struggling a bit now. The Stepan haters will be eating crow for sure.
No, this has been the argument for Stepan for awhile now. He has played with an elite (albeit painfully streaky) player that has capitalized on chances that are unworthy of granting a player a point. His 4 points in 7 games are not at all indicative of his play. Nash on the other hand has created every game and has only 2 more points then Stepan.

I'll eat crow, but it's not happening. Derek Stepan is maxed out without 12 hour daily sessions from Barb Underhill.
