Time will tell how good he becomes, but to create a ceiling for him at 23 is not smart.
This hasn't happened yet. Stepan was amazing last year, one of the most consistent regular seasons we've seen from a Ranger in a long while. Didn't have big nights, but had a single point in a lot of games.

He still hasn't reached the level of playmaking that he was touted for in college, he still hasn't been a consistent night-in night-out playmaker. He showed last year though that he's right there, ready to make the jump. Some of the passes and plays he made last year showed he's ready for the next step.
