Now thats hes in his 3rd season, some who have watched him, realize that in reality his upside is that of a decent 3rd line player when he gives a full out effort.

If anyone maintains he has been anything but brutal since the playoffs and the start of this season, I question your objectivity. If you agree with this observation, but still think he can be an above average player, then we can agree to disagree
No 3rd liners scored 50 points last year. And a lot of second liners didn't either.

95 forwards had 50+ points. There's 180 top 6 slots. Do the math. Stepan is absolutely a 2nd liner.
