It'd be even better if he was our #4 C ... Sadly, we are not coming up with Giroux, Crosby, and Malkin. In a trade it would cost a ridiculous amount, and as a UFA it'd be 7 years @ 70 million.

I'd love to have a top 5 center, but they don't grow on trees. Stepan is coming into top 15 territory. I think that's about as good as we're going to get at this point. The Bruins won the Cup with Krejci and Bergeron in the past so why couldn't we do it with Stepan and a guy (just an example) like a RoR? A player like that could potentially be obtained.
