Even if Stewart bounces back, he will still be a bad fit.
If Stewart produces 30-35-65 points consistently, then I am not trading that. I would rather trade D'Agistini and Rattie over him. Plus, keep in mind that McDonald won't be on our team forever, and he is making 4.7M per year. Once he is gone, assuming we have a similar budget, we can still afford Stewart.
Plus, we'll have to see if we can get our LHD this offseason. If we get said LHD, then there is really no need to trade Stewart the following offseason.
