Am I the only one not interested in Stewart? Look at his progression during the season, after the good first couple month his play/minutes/production really tails off and he returns to career norm pace.

He was also pretty mediocre in the AHL the year before...31 points in 77 AHL games!

You're not alone. I don't see why everyone is going all gaga over him, really not that good a player.

I'd rather we focus our efforts on more proven commodities.

I'm not crazy over Stewart like some here are, but he's still pretty tantalizing if he'd come cheap.

I do not have any interest either. I will admit I have a very low experience in watching him play though.

Nope, you're not the only one.

I want Stewart if he comes cheap. He's a big body, hits, and can put up points. You win with those guys on your bottom lines.

Thats not true!!

He's more of a hemming and hawing, hesitant and passive neutral non-commital not-threatening undecisive and an unclear and quite a wishy-washy very grey type of a person.

(I mean, a walking ghost has way too much flambyoant personnality for that guy...

I guess in your book locking ourselves into a decade long deal for a player who's clearly lost a step is worth it.

Too funny indeed.

Simon Gagne

The habs are at 59,64 m$ and still have enough to acquire someone at 4m$/year in caphit.

I just heard on rds that we should expect Simon Gagne being sign at 3m$. In Montreal that means around 4m$.

My lines would be:

Mike Camalleri-Thomas Plekanec-Erik Cole
Brian Gionta Scott Gomez Max Pacioretty
Simon Gagne Lars Eller Andrei Kostitsyn
Mathieu Darche David Desharnais Travis Moen
Ryan White

It all depends on what Gorges gets mind you. Habs have about $6-6.5 million to spend and leave a bit of a cushion under the cap.

I wouldn't say no to Pyatt back at the league minimum either.
The qualifying offer route would not have permitted it, but Pyatt could be taken back now on a two-way contract. Perhaps he needs another stint in Hamilton to re-kindle his offensive touch. The kid did score 43 goals one year in Junior in the OHL, a good league, and was also almost PPG his last time in Hamilton. He could be a good injury reserve player due to being responsible and if by chance his offence improves, all the better. If instead he stays in Hamilton, he is an excellent role model for the kids there.

All this assumes that another NHL team won't give him a one-way offer. But someone might, he really is not bad.

Well depending of your expectations....I was so fed up with Moen last year (I know, I shouldn't be), that I could envision Stewart on a 4th line and do an adequate job. Or at one point, you hope that a kid will turn his career around HERE, can't always be the other way around.

Now, the reason why I'm not high on him is that I don't see the match with Martin. Not his type of player.

I mean last year at the Trade Deadline day he gave out excuses that "we can't make trade to get better because with injuries we only have to fill the holes". I mean what kind of philosophy is that?
The obvious one?? How could he make proactive deals when he's got to make reactive ones to fill holes because of heaps of injuries. We weren't going to mortgage the future for bums like Penner anyways so get over it.

Wouldn't have a problem with Gagne at 3, but anything more than that is too much IMO.
