I really don't understand the hate around Stewart. I think he has the potential to grow with this team. He plays a similar game to Callahan in terms of being a guy who crashes the net and plays the right-wing, and plays a similar position on the power play, which would give us a better net-front option than Pouliot.

I realize that we'd have to re-sign him after next year if we wanted to keep him, but what is so bad about re-signing a 20+ goal power-forward who will be only 27 years old to start next season? Worst case is that we trade him the same way we are likely to trade Callahan. Teams always covet size and scoring at the deadline. Best case we get a younger player who can remain a part of the team and we sign him to a reasonable contract.
