And I think he will. But again, that's just a bottom pairing role.

Steir is nothing more than a #5Dman who can put points
Last night was not the entire season. He's been pressing the play to try and get some offense going. With that he's going to have some turnovers. He would be putting up points if the forwards weren't all a collective dumpster fire, outside of Couturier and Giroux.

He better start doing more when he's in the lineup if he wants to warrant that kind of praise. I don't even get the hype. He's a 24 year old undrafted college free agent that has struggled for two seasons just to stay in the NHL. Sure he could get better, but how much better can he really get? His skill set is pretty limited, and he doesn't have one thing that he does above average.

Last night, sure. Over the course of 82 games? Probably not. That's where Gus is at right now.
