It's partially playing next to Crosby, and also because Stewart is a near perfect fit for Pittsburgh's system. Not only would he not be the main guy on his line, it's an offensive, puck control oriented system that Stewart would thrive on. Stewart has already scored 29 goals twice in his career, it's no stretch of the imagination to say he'd score 40 playing next to the best player in the world, in a system that suits his strengths.
Considering how poorly Stewart performed last season and the fact that only 4 NHL players scored 40 goals last year, I sure as hell wouldn't trade for him betting on it.
