D STEPAN 18:56 82GP 51P

this tells us:

Stepan got the most ice time out of the 3
Stepan played the most games out of the 3
Stepan played on a Conference winning team riding shotgun with Gaborik whereas the 2 others teams didnt even make the playoffs
Are those stats supposed to mean something? I guess we forgot Stepan was 21 years old last year while Jokinen was 28 and Antropov was 32/33. It took Antropov years to find his game in the NHL. And Jokinen put up similar numbers when he was around Stepan's age then he declined for a few years then he got his stats back up again.

I guess by your thinking Jokinen should've been considered a bust after he put up 55 points in his rookie year only to have his totals decline the next 4 seasons, right? I'm not saying you're saying Stepan is a bust but to be going after the KID when he has put up two good seasons, his totals increased from year one to year two...is utterly ridiculous. Oh and by the way he wasn't riding "shotgun" to gaborik all year because I'm pretty sure at the end of the year Gaborik was playing with Richards....just give it a rest.
