Actually, I'd say that Stuart is more feared right now as a hitter. Murray doesn't hit like he used to. He doesn't go for the big hit. He hasn't been standing up at the blue line much anymore. The only thing forwards shy away from is finishing a check on him when he has the puck. Nobody is really intimidated at the thought of going down his side because you can skate around him at this point. Stuart still has enough mobility and aggression to take someone out on occasion.
