He is having a rough start to the season, but with such unusual circumstances I'm not ready to say he there is no progression left.
but wasn't Weight always projected to be a complete player, which is not the case with Stepan, who gets by and to a limited extent contributes on intangibles, but clearly lacks the physical ability and gifts to ever excel or dominate?

Stepan can improve certain aspects, sure, but if he fills out, how strong can he be? his skating can improve, but can he ever motor with the other guys on our club?

Let's keep him, use him wisely, but not hesitate if there is a good offer!
