Guys like Backes, Oshie, and Steen, who are great fits in our system, will always be contributing, even if they aren't producing.
2)Stewart isn't a power forward either. He has never played like one, even with Colorado.
3)Stewart will never be a great backchecker, he just won't be. For him to be successful, he will have to be with a playmaker, and a good defensive forward who will cover for his limitations. We have those players, he just has to regain chemistry with them. He can be successful, but that doesn't mean he will be a good fit with our system.
4)It's not that hard to understand that one-dimensional offensive forwards are not a good fit in our system.
1. Perron and Stewart are two completly different men. One is big and strong the other is little in strong. The bigger one has a better change of becoming a better 2way player b/c of his physical attributes. 2. i never said he played like a power forward. I along others including Doug Armstong believe he can be one of the dominant PF in the league. He could be like Milan Lucic. 3. Stewart can be a good backchecker. He needs better conditioning and he could suprise you and the other doubters. 4. obviously what you said is true but once again you just cant be definative enough to make me believe that he cannot become a 2 way player/power forward.
