Stepan, as of right now, is a much better bet to reach his ceiling, and considering Steps has outplayed Kreids at every level (college, WJC, the NHL now) I think it's fair to say Steps has the higher ceiling, too.

Not to say Kreider won't be good. But I think Kreider has 25-30 goal potential, while Stepan has 70+ point potential.
I dont think anybody was putting down stepan and/or comparing stepan to kreider. as of now stepan has proven to be a very good player while kreider is still learning. Stepan has been tremendous i think can be even better. I think people were just saying that skillwise kreider has a ridiculous ceiling. I think Kreider is gonna put up some points this last 16 games because he is playing with swag and confidence
