I expect that from a John Scott, not a Derek Stepan.
Brad Richards is a pretty crappy skater too. Stepan brings a lot to the table aside from skating and shooting (when he's on his game, of course). He's a great playmaker, great stickhandler, surprisingly good at cycling the puck and protecting the puck along the boards.

His success the last two years was not a fluke. He doesn't need to be a great skater or shooter to be successful.
