actually Chipper is not that small, and he was a very chippy (no pun intended) player in the Western hockey league.

Well yea but Chipper has good size but not that gritty; Stewart is not very big but IS gritty. I wasn't talking about some comedy routine where one is gritty and the other is big, "and they all get along...!" but guys that are both!

That said, they should both be playing for the Habs next season.

Stewart isn't big or gritty? Do you mean he is large and bad-*** instead?

He is 6'2, 200lbs, plays the game a bit like a slightly slower Lapierre that can fight and do well in his fights.

As for Chip, he is a solid player. He isn't often the aggressor in games but will stand up for himself or teammates whenever needed. He's a similar size to Stewart and while he doesn't hit as much as some people would like, he does use his size/strength to win most of his battles for the puck and keep any position he chooses to take on the ice.

There are certainly bigger and grittier guys than those two, but they can hold their own for sure. And if anyone gets either of them angry, they can both hurt the opposition one way or another.

Edit - nevermind

Dang I was sure Stewart wasn't that big. He looked about the size of McCabe when he fought him.

its funny how some people here talk about our farm players but dont even have a clue about them or their progress, try watching some Dogs games or at the very least do a little research.

Well yea I saw Stewart one game. And he didn't look like a big gritty guy. Is McCabe a big guy?

You mean the game he played with the Habs? If so, I dont know what else you were watching at the same time cause Stewart stood out with his physical play, grit, toughness and some surprising stickhandling skills.. I just liked this kid's charactere..

Oh my friend, you are so wrong. Chips is 6ft2, 205 lbs while Stewart is 6ft2, 200 lbs. Chipchura plays hard at both ends of the ice and uses his strength and size very intelligently to win battles....has also dropped the gloves a few times this season and looked good doing so. Stewart is leading the Bulldogs in PIM's by a country mile (already has 88 PIM's) and his entire game is based on grit. In his lone NHL game at the end of last season, he created several scoring chances with his grinding style and hits, and he even beat up Bryan McCabe in a fight late in the game.

I'm sure some of the other Bulldogs fans can comment more on these two players.

I like Stewart, and not just based on that that one game vs. Toronto...I like his grit and tenacity and to me he looks like the perfect guy to step in on the 4th line next year or maybe even later this year...with Bégin in his last year of contract with the team, Stewart's got an opportunity to bring alot of the same things Bégin does but with a bit more size + fighting ability.

Stewart-Lapierre-Kostopoulos/Laraque is probably what we'll see next year IMO

Halak is really going to have to step it up for tonight. His last game was not bad per say but far from his best. With all due respect to Denis, I would rather not see him in the Habs net.

Stewart is a player who can play in any situation you need him too. If you need him to bang and grind he will and that is what he specializes in. However he is also an extremely fast skater who will out hustle any player on the ice. He can power through and create scoring chanches or he can set up the beautiful goal. When he was put on a line with D'agostini at the start of a game against Peoria this year he scored a goal started by him out skating the d man and then a behind the back pass to D'agostini and then did what he does best and crashed the net. As far as fighting goes he will drop the gloves with anyone in the league and there are few that would beat him and even if they do he will get his fair shots in too. He is exactly what Montreal needs.

Can anyone give me a definitive answer. Does Denis have to clear waivers to return to the Bulldogs?

If yes, if a team takes him does Denis have to stay on their NHL roster for the season?

Thanks...

I believe he has a two way contract, so no.

I don't have the answer to the original question, but it doesn't change anything if he has a two-way contract. He does have a two way contract actually, but it simply means he has a lower salary in the AHL.

Why? He plays a much smarter game as a center then Lappierre ever will. He'sbetter positioned and closes middle ice alot more effectively then Lappierre. Infact, Lappierre is the one who should be playing at wing and using his workethic to play a strong game along the boards and start applying a more agressive forecheck. Next year i hope to god our 4th line will be Laraque-Chipchura-Lappierre. We have the heavyweight fighter with ok skill, the defensive specialist with untaped offensive abilities and the agitator with elite speed and good defenisve skills, it'as the perfect 4th line imo.

You are correct, and the answer to the original question is yes, he can be claimed on waivers.
