My thoughts on Stepan:

He definitely offers a different skill set than the other centers. I think Joe Micheletti nailed it in the broadcast the other day. Stepan is a good playmaker, good on the power play. Furthermore, he has been a "good soldier" for Team USA in the past.

on Bobby Ryan:

I would have liked to see him on the roster. You can never have enough scoring options. In my opinion, power play is the 2nd most important factor in winning a tournament like this (after goaltending). The other PP wingers ahead of Ryan would be Kessel, Parise, JVR, and Kane. A good group but always good to have more options should things not click or someone get hurt.
