For me Stepan played his best hockey and played to his full potential whereas many of the other players did not. The fact that Stepan upped his game at a time where our supposed #1 center struggled badly was particularly important & valuable.

Henke had a solid season and of course played a huge role in our making the playoffs but I don't necessarily feel like we saw his best hockey from him or that he played to his max potential.
And yet Henrik finished with his 2nd best season statistically.
