I wouldn't read too much into the signing. It was for minimum possible term and involved a pay cut which is somewhat unusual for an RFA tabbed for a scoring line role, especially one who was the focus of such a monster trade such a short while ago. The onus is clearly on Stewart to prove himself. It's not like Armstrong wasn't going to qualify Stewart and lose him for nothing. What comments is Armstrong supposed to give other than shows of confidence? Basically I wouldn't read anything into the fact they signed him to this kind of deal. If it had been a 3 year deal then that's a real vote of confidence.
