David Krejci 10GP 5G 11A = 16P
Patrice Bergeron 10GP 3G 4A = 7P

Brad Richards 10GP 1G 0A = 1P
Derek Stepan 10GP 3G 0A = 3P

So basically, our "top 2" Centers suck right now. Add that Nash has 1 goal, and well here we are.

I like Stepan as a player, he has a lot of potential. BUT he will never be a Logan Couture type player which is what any team needs down the middle to be competitive in today's league. He just doesn't have the offensive toolset. Only way you can get away with Step as your 2C in the playoffs is if you have a powerhouse 1C, which clearly we don't.
So Stepan is not even a 2C anymore? Ok...
