If Boyle and Murray are back together, I'm guessing Stuart will spend time with both Demers and Braun.
Stuart will be a good mentor for Demers. When he came up, he could play physically but didn't. He could carry the puck but didn't handle it well enough to be a good PP QB. His foot work wasn't developed and defensively he would give too much ice to players to compensate for being a little weak there.
Demers has more upside than Steuy IMO but they are similar in their games at similar points in their careers. If Demers can get his skating together and be more physical on a consistent basis, he is a top 4 defenseman. If he can't get better defensively, he is on the bench.
