I pointed out a few months ago on damn near every nhl team stepan is a 2C and on some teams he's a 3C
Boston - berg krecji
Pitt - malkin Crosby
SJS - Thornton couture
La - Richards kopitar
Van - sedin kesler
Col - duchene stastny

This is 6 teams that would have our 1C playing 3C on their team. Anybody know what they all have in common? They'll all make the playoffs this year, so how does the NYR compete with teams like this when our top line center would be a 3C on 6 teams in the league? I'm not against stepan I really like the guy but his skating really holds him back and it seems he rarely plays with fire. If he stays a ranger he will have to be our 2C for us to succeed and we have to either strike gold and draft our 1C (best option) or trade for one like Dallas went out and did by getting seguin (I want eberle even though he's a winger now)
