I will say that considering his inconsistent nature, if I were a GM, I would seriously consider trading him the moment his value increases. Not saying that we don't need the goals, but this team forever needs to manage it's assets to remain financially viable.

The main point of what Armstrong said was that this is Stewart's year to prove himself, not just to our team but to the league. I think he can and will improve both his offensive and defensive game, whether or not it's enough for him to maintain his current salary with the Blues or any other NHL team is yet to be seen.
So you're saying that things in life aren't certain? Yeah.....I'm pretty sure we're all familiar with that concept. What exactly do you want from Tarasenko other than a commitment to come to NA which he's already given? Care to explain the inconsistent nature comment?

I hear too much unwarranted fear and uncertainty in your post so I'll just guarantee Tarasenko will outperform Stewart. There. All better now?
