Feel free to dispute this all you want, but LA has 2 (arguably 3) centers better than Stepan and they've won 2 of the past 3 years. You need elite centermen to win in this league
As one of Stepan's biggest fans I see no problem with this. He's not athletic enough (unless he takes some major steps in the next 2 years) to be a first line center. Smart enough player but I don't mind him at all as a 2nd line center who can occasionally slot up.
