TK421,

What evidence do you need? Stewart was a 28 goal scorer the previous two years. If you saw the even strength goal scoring numbers he scored the same number of even strength goals as Backes and I'm sure Backes had at least a couple of empty netters. Oshie only scored one more even strength goal. Stewart is 24 not 34. His skills haven't eroded. Conditioning had little to do with his season. I believe after having a poor year and seeing what Arnott does he decided to change his diet and go on more of an extensive work out regiment. A very sensible thing to do.

On another note trading Stewart for a mid first round pick is a big gamble. For one, the draft choice at best won't be able to contribute for at least 2 years and there is no guarantee that whoever they pick will pan out. Stewart is a proven goal scorer and a good fighter. We'll see what happens.
