He'll get passed around from team to team, each successor club thinks that they'll be the ones to reel him in, or they have a coach or a teammate that they think he'll work with and for, but it never really comes fruition...he never delivers on his fullest potential...
He'll probably do his best work on bad or loose teams, if there's ever another league expansion, he'll be there...but when it's time for a serious team to get serious, Stewart (barring the ever-discussed, ever-banked on turnaround) will be pushed to the margins or pushed to the next stop...
Whether you believe that or not, I don't mind, I would be skeptical too. But as a Penguins fan, I have no interest in him. There are hungrier players out there that are determined to get better, to be an active part of the solution that the Pens could do better with. Even if they aren't as talented.
So to project a boost in scoring over the next season or two is just some wishful thinking and ill-informed desires that have no basis in reality... but you've projected his entire career from here on out. Get over yourself, and this mad prophet crap, just say you're not interested and could easily understand why other GMs would be skeptical. Rather than I can predict the future and also read the minds of every person in the Pens front office and while I'm at it Chris Stewart's as well.
