Stempniak's problem has always been consistency but that's what would make his price fair / not require a big asset, even though his upside with us is potentially big.
Just having a guy who could hold onto the puck and create on his own would make a massive difference in the Pens top six. He hasn't played with a top notch pivot, ever, that I can recall. Not in Calgary and I'm trying to think of his Yotes/Leafs pivots and I don't recall any highly skilled ones he played with.

I really think with his skillet he could be a 50 point guy with Malkin/Crosby and make their lives much easier on the ice.
