How Good is Stepan Defensively?

hi guys, i'm playing a fantasy draft and having a hard time choosing between Ennis or Stephan for my 3rd line. I know Ennis is pure skill but how good is Stephan defensively? might choose Stephan if he's a real responsible player. Help me guys.

Do you mean Stepan? If so, yeah, he's pretty decent.

Yeah, he's a real Rick Nash out there. Terrible.

But if it's a fantasy team, why do you care?

Do people seriously not realize his name is Stepan and not every other way people have been butchering his simple name?

Stepon is a pretty good defensive player.

Stepan is good defensively for his age. However, I think Ennis will get 70+ points next season. I'd take him over Stepan.

OMG do you even watch Rangers games? DO you know what hockey is? I bet you couldn't differentiate between a urinal cake and a hockey puck. GTFO.

No I actually didn't get what you meant, but I didn't think you were being serious either way.

Now that you've pointed that out, I quickly clued in to the joke.

While it was I joke I think part of it is true, none of the Rangers can hit an empty net.

He's decent now.

He was a great defensive player before the pros, but his speed is giving him issues in this department. Just a little work on his skating and he can be twice the player he is now, both offensively and defensively. His hockey IQ is through the roof.

I think he's great when he can actually get in position, but no doubt his poor skating limits defensive play somewhat.
