Im not opposed to putting Brassard with nash and kreider because they need a center who has some skating ability and passing
Stepan and Nash have not been good this season. Stepan has 26 points, on pace for about 48 points or so. That is really pretty good and solid for a 2nd liner, but being the Rangers top center? Does not cut it. Sadly, none of our centers or anyone on this team are on pace for over 60 points.

I think people are getting confused because the Nash - Stepan - Kreider is not really the Rangers top line right now.

Btw, not saying secondary assists should not count, but around 12 or so of Stepan's points are secondary assists.
