Reading quotes like that, is exactly what I see when I watch Stepan play, how do you not see any of that?
Nope, I don't. Ever. Who is this Stephan guy?

I have been watching him since he was drafted. And I can tell you, you are incorrect in your evaluation of this talent. Plain and simple.

He has struggled to start the season. I won't argue that. The team around him has looked average at best to this point and (2) top-6 wingers are now out of the line-up.

Do you play a lot of NHL '13? Because comments like I would rather have Eberle make it seem that way. Of course you want Eberle over Stepan. Eberle is a blossoming #1 center. Eberle is PAID well too.

So you basically think it is a reasonable expectation for this team to have a second #1 center in the line-up?
