We might lose ELC time, but what does that matter? It means he has less of a proven record when it comes time to negotiate his extension, so it'll be cheaper then.

D'Agostini might have played on the top line for a while, but he still averaged under 15 minutes a game in 2010/11.

Offensively? Certainly. All round game? No way can I agree. Schwartz is too easily moved of the puck, and made more than a couple of really poor decisions with it in the defensive zone in the glimpse we got of him. That will get ironed out, only a matter of where we will let it happen.

But he does really need to significantly improve his upper body strength.

The only reason D'Agostini got a pass for his performance this past season was because Stewart disappointed just a little bit more, but not by much. Dags didn't offer anything for the majority of the season.
D'Agostini was certainly disappointing last season, but it is insulting to even put him in remotely the same category as Stewart. They aren't in any way comparable.
