Hopefully he keeps it up long enough for the Blues to give him a long, expensive contract. But I want no part of buying high on him. That's a terribad deal for the Sharks.

Pavelski>>Stewart, Vlasic>>Schwartz, and we're adding the 2nd? No thanks.

Besides, Schwartz is not a good skater, and Stewart isn't a great skater, so it's not like we're getting faster.
Stewart is a pretty quick skater. I've always liked the guy, he's like a mini Ryane Clowe with more skill. Plus you are not accounting for the fact that Pavelski is a UFA in 1 year, and we may not be able to afford his next contract.

Trading Pavelski/Clowe for Stewart/Schwartz deffinetly makes our top-6 faster, you can't really argue that.
