Skill is nice, but when you have rocks in your head it doesnt matter all that much. For every Jordan Eberle, theres a thousand Enver Lisin's
Is it too much to ask to have a player with all of Stepan's positives that you have pointed out here and be a player who actually has hands, and the ability to skate well? (it is hockey afterall, and its played on ice, skating is important!)
