Stepan is overrated by the organization and even more by the fan base who claim him to be some ultimate home grown, American talent.
He is an average hockey player, with below average 'god-given' talent.
The amount of points he racked up in two years does not equate to the skill level of a player. So many other variables are involved.
Like what? Defensive play?
People underrate how good even a 50 point NHL player is to have on this team. Oh, and that is 50 points at the old age of 21.
Stepan has good hands. You can critique his skating. Same with Brad Richards. But hands and hockey IQ and overall play? Above average.
