Agree with most of this. I think Step has the potential to be a very good thing for NYR, but I'm hesitant to say he is far and away guaranteed to be a 1C based on one great half season which also happened to be a contract year. If he replicates it this season, great, I'll buy in.

Don't agree with the idea that Gabby was better in the POs than Nash though. He was just along for the ride on a lot of his points in the ECF run. Nash absolutely needs to be better, but he actually made a lot of plays happen during the POs. Whereas unless Gabby was scoring (which he didn't do enough of), he was invisible - and yes I know Gabby was injured; don't care. Overall they were both bleh.
