While he could hypothetically provide scoring depth at the AHL level, I wouldn't consider Stewart to be the kind of 'Veteran' Pro you want showing the ropes to the kids down on the farm. Just lacks the character and discipline (to conditioning etc.) you'd want in that role. Unless the Habs want to groom the next crop developmental disasters like 'Hollywood' Hainsey or Latendresse*.

*This is not a knock on the Dogs/Habs past or current development; it is more a critique of the players named.
