How about 'assisted by', if he stays at first line centre he'll be hearing that A LOT this year... :-P

When I see his name on the opening night roster, I'll vote for "Stepan in the right direction."

i'd hold off on getting his jersey. if he nmakes the team he's likely to get a different number or at least next yr switched to a lower number like a few of the younger vets

STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

LI Joe said...

step it up

Andrea said...

It'll end up "Steps" like Rick noted, or "Stepper" because it's easy. Although wouldn't it be cool to see him on the cover of The Hockey News someday with the headline "Derek-cellent!"

As in.. Dave Concepcion the great Cincinnatti Reds Shortstop
