Is it too early to declare Chris Stewart is back?

We know Stewart still doesn't play a super all-around 2-way game. His defence now is "passable" because he's scoring again. He's getting back much of the time, but still not getting back all the time. He's picking his spots for making hits. But, his hitting more, and in situations that help more than some of his half-hearted or unhelpful hits last season. He's playing much better without the puck, and making better passes. He's driving the net, and cycling better, and much more willing to fight for position in front of the goal, than last year.
His overall game still needs a lot of improvement. But scoring again, skating much better, playing so-so, rather than abysmal defence, fighting hard for position and for the puck, all make him now worth keeping, rather than a liability.
