should have clarified my post better, i liked him when we first brought him up, showed some tenacity and fighting spirit, but last season he seemed to have lost something. Seemed like he didn't want to fight anymore.
IMO it's the Martin effect. Just look at Moen's PIMs after becoming a Hab. 2 of his fights came in the first game of the season.
I can't believe there are some here actually upset he's gone. As if he provided anything. If you want toughness that can be effective, look at Travis Moen. Instead, letting Stewart walk is part of a grand pussification project? Get real, he ****ing sucked.
Stewart's first game against the Leafs was CLASSIC. The rest, not so much.
Strangest thing ever. He showed more fire in one game than the rest of the entire Habs roster that we had at the time. But we never saw that Stewart ever again. In one game he looked like Dale Hunter. The rest, he wasn't even Murray.
Maybe he changed his style because after that one game they sent him down...?
I kinda liked Stewie. He really tried to stick up for his teammates although he wasn't very good at it. He was willing to get his nose dirty too but was pretty lousy in his own zone. I remember one glaring error which seemingly was his demise.
