Never knew that increasing your point totals every season since your rookie year, while getting higher TOI time and more responsibility meant stagnation. Interesting. What would it be considered if a players point totals and overall play on the ice regressed season to season? Improvement? Stepan is a stud, I knew from his WJC he was something special. This kid still has tons of improving to do, he still oozes potential, offensively and defensively. Once he gets his skating to catch up with his hands, he's going to be our home-grown all-star center. For now, lets keep him our little secret.
