He isn't anywhere near the Giroux's, Duchenes, Coutures, and about another 20+ centers in the league and he wouldn't be any better than a 2nd line center on most teams and a 3rd line center on some other teams.
In my mind, 6 mil for 2 years is more than a fair contract offer for Stepan.
The only teams that he would be anywhere near the 3rd line would be teams that wouldn't need him because of ridiculous deptj...like J.Staal in Pitt...he's not a 3rd line C
