We need his potential goal scoring ability more than you think we do.

I really think that Armstrong is going to make a trade with one of the wingers. I think the most likely are either Stewart or Perron, and only one of those will be able to acquire a piece that we truly need.

Lets say Stewart gets in the 50-60 point range, that production still won't be demanding the big bucks. Lets say he exceeds that amount, he would prove he is worth keeping or at the minimum the prove it contract was worth it.

After the season he had, there is really no risk with Stewart either way, as the expectations will be very low. If he succeeds elsewhere, no one will blame Army for moving him. If he stays and fails again, maybe we can dump him somewhere or he just plays on the 3rd or 4th line.

We are losing a lot of salary, so his 3.25 won't be that big of a deal. More than likely we could have a typical Blues offseason and not make a big spending move, even if we do move Stewart, so you can't say that if we keep Stewart it prevents us from get Suter or Parise or any of the other high price players.
