He was huge, tough, and skilled.

Funny story - was was almost killed when he crossed the road and was run over by a horse-drawn buggy. I'll see if I can find the newspaper article about it.
Thanks. I needed a left wing so didn't bother to look at Nolan-Guerin. After I lost out of Alf Smith, Bruce Stuart was right near the top of my list for the type of left wings I needed. I had Tkachuk already and thought he'd be an awkward fit anyway. And while Gord Roberts is a more established scorer, I think Bruce Stuart's combination of size and physical play is really what I needed on that line. The fact that I already drafted his brother is a bonus.
