From everything I have read from Armstrong and Hitchcock they seem to think Stewart can be a fit in this system. You have to remember Brett Hull fit into Hitchcock's system. Hull had a 39 goal 79 point season with Hitchcock. Modano fit in Hitchcock's system as well and had 80 point seasons.

Do you honestly think if Hitchcock thought Stewart was not a fit he would still be with the team. As we saw after Hitchcock became out coach the Russel deal. It shows Hitchcock has a lot of input on Armstrong's decisions. Stewart could have been traded mid season when his value was not as low as it is today. All signs point to Hitchcock thinking Stewart can play in his system and play well at that.
