Maybe you could sell them on something around Meszaros, who would pair well with either Pietrangelo or Shattenkirk, but I don't see where Stewart fits on this team, given his salary, etc.
His salary would be about 3.5 mil after a 10% raise with the rfa qualifier. I think attitude and work ethic were his downfall which to me is nothing too out of the ordinary for young players nowadays, especially ones who have immediate success in the league. I like the Mezz deal if they would take it.

I quess I have a lower opinion than most flyers fans in regards to Voracek. I see 2nd line winger max with his production and questionable finishing skills, like Tuomo Ruutu. Stewart if he can mature a bit has 1st line power forward potential with excellent finishing ability.
