I'm not as sold on D-Step as seemingly everyone else on this board is. I think he's a very smart and responsible player with vision and skill, but he hasn't proven that he can be THAT player consistently over 82 games and his previous point totals speak to that.

It's just ridiculous to see people acting like he's a bonafide #1 C when the only reason he was in that position last season is because our actual proven #1 C was playing like a piece of poop all season.

And I'm saying this while Step is one of my favorite players in the league.
Always time well spent bashing a strawman argument. I don't think one person is ready to call Stepan a legitimate #1 center yet.

The 2-year bridge deal is agreed upon, and the range is $3-3.5M per year. Hardly #1 center salary and term anyway.
