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?
Since your opinion is clearly the only correct one, what are his talents exactly? I mean maybe my TV is broken but I haven't seen anywhere near enough flashes of talent from Stepan that says he should be a #2 center. If you're argument is stats based, please spare me.. this is the NHL not MLB
