we need some size down the middle and someone who can push the puck with speed.
He's bland, but he's great defensively and good offensively.
He's a good 1C. We can use a GREAT 1C, sure, but he's a good 1C. Not a 2C.
When you're spending the money we are on Hank, and will be on McD and Kreider and Zuke and Nash and MSL and everyone else, you make due with what you have. Obviously we'd be better with Kopitar- every team in the league would. But Step is a very good player who constantly drives plays up the ice and breaks up plays down the ice. We're lucky to have him.
