helps having step richards and brass now.. solid center depth..
True, and center depth can't be underrated every for success, but Pat B. put up a PPG in the playoffs (I think? Maybe like 2-3 points off) the year the Broons won the Cup. In the regular season he was under 60 points, but I don't know if they win if Bergeron doesn't step up like he did for the playoffs.

Either way, Stepan is fantastic and be it as a franchise 1st liner or an elite 2nd liner i'm glad we have a player of his caliber on the team for the foreseeable future.
