Stephenson is good at penalty kill and has great speed. Gets breakaways as a result but finish is not quite there. Lately he's been more physical, actually going into the corners and battling for pucks, which surprised me. He would have probably had better numbers up to this point in his career if not on a top '6' heavy Caps team. I'm not saying he's a top 6 player, just that the Caps depth over the recent past has forced them to play some potential top 6 guys in the bottom 6 (Burky being one). I could have even seen the Caps getting a 3rd or 4th for him if they weren't in salary cap desperation. Anyway, good luck to Chandler!
