Well, he took a bit of a paycut. If he doesn't bounce back, we're only stuck with him for a year. I think it's a good deal.

luckily, I believe he'll still be a RFA when this contract expires.

I think this says a lot about Stewart taking a paycut. It shows good character IMO that he knows he was bad and he is willing to prove himself this season.

CarvinSigX 06-14-2012 01:23 PM

Wait...You mean we were right and the Blues DID in fact qualify him? Now it's time to trade him. Or don't. Or do.

The cut might have been somewhat forced on him with the potential to go to arbitration, which could have seen him lose another $200,000+.

Glad the deal is done. I heard that we were close to a deal with Perron and hoped to have it announced by the weekend.

No. It's time to find a center to get Stewart the puck and it's not Bergland IMO.

I don't really understand whether you qualify someone at their previous caphit or the last season's salary. Can anyone explain?

I'm confused too. I thought RFAs had to be qualified at least 100% of their past salary. The Canucks just filed arbitration to be able to give Raymond a paycut. How come the Blues didn't have to?

Like this deal alot, I was as frustrated as anyone last year with Stew(except maybe Mike Liut) but I really believe he will be able to bounce back next year.

The qualifying offer is based on the last years salary, which was $3.25m for Stewart. A player can choose to sign for less, which is what looks to be the case here.

As far as I know you can qualify him if he doesn't accept another deal that you have offered, but if he agrees to a deal that is less or more than what he made last year it doesn't matter.

A player can choose to take a paycut, but if he refused and the team didn't extend a qualifying offer then he would be a UFA on July 1.

Raymond clearly didn't want to take a paycut, so the Canucks have elected to go to arbitration, which could take up to 15% off of the previous seasons salary. Vancouver will have to live with whatever the arbitrator decides though, so they might not get a discount. But it means that Raymond won't be an UFA on July 1.

Steal for the Blues if Stewart comes out and goes 30-30 next season.

LOL I don't think anyone comes close to Mike Luits level of frustration.

Agreed, jeez, since Liut lost to a Backup Rangers Goalie J.D was injured in the 1981 2nd round playoffs for the Blues back in the day?

Yes indeed. I'm a huge Stewart fan, it seemed to me anyway stewie didn't develop chemistry with anyone this past season.

MattyMo35 06-14-2012 02:00 PM

I really hope he bounces back. I really want to like the guy. He seems like a great guy and it seems like all the players really enjoy having him around. I hope both for him and the team that he succeeds next year, though it's difficult to envision with how lost he looked last year.

PocketNines 06-14-2012 02:07 PM

It's basically the deal we expected for Stewart, only with the 250K paycut which signals his understanding he didn't live up to expectations this season. I remain impressed with Armstrong's ability to negotiate contracts.

Also glad something finally happened. Seems like we're going to have a frenetic two and a half weeks of news between all the coaching/front office news, UFA decisions, Perron, Oshie, the draft and July 1.

Mike Liut 06-14-2012 02:20 PM

3 mill for a guy who doesn't hit, fight or score and doesn't fit in Hitch's system. Can you say trade bait ?

It was only 2 million, and the team already announced that JD is moving on.

Blanick 06-14-2012 02:39 PM

Its about what I expected, like others said I think it says a ton about his character that he would sign for a discount even if it is only 250k. Now hopefully next year he can score 30 goals instead of 30 points.

Just having a little fun with your exaggerated description. It sounds more aptly applied to someone in the front office than to Chris Stewart.

STL fan in IA 06-14-2012 02:52 PM

Good deal. Glad to see he took a bit of a paycut too. I'm nowhere near ready to give up on Stewie yet.
