That's like saying the day McDonagh can score like Karlson or Staal intimidates like Chara let me know.

He doesn't have to be the best player in the league to be a good player.
Yet Eberle only had 52 points in his first two years as a pro, to Stepan's 96 points.

Derek Stepan first two seasons played 164 games total: 96 points.

Jordan Eberle first two seasons played 147 games total: 119 points.

Stepan's numbers are a result of who he played with, not of how good of a hockey player he is.

I want a guy who can skate, has good hands, and plays a good two-way game.

I'm sorry, I just think Stepan is overrated.
