guy has an already excellent resume, is a leader, has a two-way game and has improved each year with production... he has already exceeded expectations here in only 3 yrs..

so why dont we pump the breaks be happy with who he is and what he brings to the table and see how this plays out before we pass judgements..
Agree with you and I am happy with who he is and what he has brought to the table thus far.

It's no slight to Stepan in saying that he won't be close to Bergeron who made the Bruins out of the gate at age 18 and had over 70 points his 2nd and 3rd seasons before the concussion bugaboo hit him hard. He was on the fast track to superstardom only to have his career derrailed for a few seasons.

Stepan can be like him as a player but never nearly as good as him.
