Only my opinion, but i feel the last true #1 center we had was Nylander. Stepan could become a #1 if he dedicated himself to improving what's holding him back from taking the next step.

His conditioning.
His strength.
His skating.

If he can improve those areas, the rest will take care of itself, because he has the smarts and skill.

When Zuccarello first stepped into the NHL, he wasn't a very good skater, he wasn't strong enough. He drastically improved his weaknesses and now he's an effective player.
