This bolded logic makes absolutely zero sense to me. You have to start somewhere. You need to be strong down the middle, on defense, and in net to be a cup winning team. What you just wrote is the completely wrong thought-process. That's like saying, why draft Pietrangelo 4th overall if he has nobody to play with? Why bring over Tarasenko when we don't have a #1 center on this team? You don't just throw it out the window. We need a #1 center, so we need to try to get one. Not a difficult concept to understand. And we do have players for the guy to play with, BTW, so that's just completely wrong. It isn't like we have 4th-liners in our top 6...

As for Stewart, he was the same streaky scorer in Colorado that he is now. But he played with Stastny a lot, and was on a 30-goal pace in both full seasons that he played with the Avs.

Just curious, would you guys do a swap of Stewart for Edler?
No. Now that we have Bouwmeester we don't need Edler. Great player though.
