There's a reason Winnipeg didn't give him Stewart a qualifying offer and nobody wanted him when we waived him last year: he sucks at hockey.

Despite facing the weakest quality of competition of any of our regular forwards *and* starting a greater percentage of shifts in the offensive zone than any of our regular forwards, Anthony Stewart had the second worst Corsi rating of any of our regular forwards.

He's an awful even strength player and completely useless on special teams. People want to cite his point totals compared to his ice time, but he still got wildly outshot and was a minus player even while playing against 4th liners and 3rd pairing defensemen. So, yeah, Stewart scores a fair amount compared to his ice time, but he gives up more and gets significantly outchanced...while playing against the other team's worst players.

I don't understand how anyone can watch Anthony Stewart and think he belongs in the NHL, let alone is a good third liner. Every time he gets the puck it's only seconds before the other team has it. I've seen enough ****ing blind one-touch passes in the defensive zone, thank you very much.

The key argument towards keeping this utterly atrocious hockey player on our team is his "size" and other forwards lack of "size". Yet, what does A Stew do with this size? Nothing...nothing at all.
