For the umpteenth time--Derek Stepan is 22 years old. Do you know what Callahan's numbers were in his 22 year old season? 13 points and a trip back to the AHL. It's WAY too early to talk about anything "not translating" to the NHL.
Ding, ding, ding.

This is the truth. People need a player to come on here and whine about. Stepan is the whipping boy for now, just like so many other players have been in the past. Let's start an "irrational pessimism" thread and just throw all this garbage in there.

Great point about Cally too. 22 is too early to be making these sort of judgements on any player.
