Obviously I'm exaggerating about him putting up 80 points, but yes. There is a reason scouts exists in hockey and all other professional sports
Yeah, so that guys like Jeff Francoeur can suck ass, but because they look and act like baseball players, scouts keep them in a high regard.

Stepan historically has not looked nearly as bad as you are trying to make it sound like, and the points back that up. You're wrong. Listening 5 teams with more than one elite center (except maybe Boston, but in which your beloved scouts have said Stepan has Patrice Bergeron potential anyway) doesn't change the fact Stepan has established himself as a 2C. Just because Evgeni Malkin and Vinny Lecavalier are technically second line centers doesn't mean they wouldn't be first liners elsewhere.
