I wouldn't mind seeing Stewart playing on a line with one or two of the kids. He would add a bit of touch, size and grit.

If/when Hemsky gets traded, they will have room on their roster. In the meantime, Lander can go down to the farm to play with his Swedish linemates.

Petrell or, preferably, Lander down to the farm. It's hard to argue either a) that our 4th line is remotely competent as it is or b) that Lander could use some easier competition and more ice time to develop.

I don't particularly think we should pick up Stewart, but if we did, he'd have to be the 4th line RW. He's not a good enough player to be anywhere else.

He has played center in the past. Shelter him against opposition 4th lines, as well as small lines, and we could have a big man down the middle. When was the last time we were able to boast that? Jiri Dopita?! (Pure GOLD!)

It would give Lander some AHL games, so that he can compete with the Barons for the Calder Cup.

Anthony Stewart

Age: 27
Date of birth: January 05, 1985
Place of birth: Lasalle, Que, Canada
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 230
Shoots: R
Salary: $800,000
NHL Seasons: 5
Drafted by Florida in 2003 (1/25).
Acquired as a free agent in 2011


ASSETS: Owns a huge frame, which he can use effectively in the corners. Finishes his checks and is tough and physically powerful. Skates well enough for a big man, and packs a heavy shot. At his best when he barrels through and has his game-face on. Has untapped power forward potential.

FLAWS: Must continue to prove he can consistently score goals against the highest competition. Needs to keep his weight in check and must keep improving his overall game-to-game consistency.

CAREER POTENTIAL: Physical winger with some upside.

Since when?

Either way, if we were looking at aquiring someone to play the 4th line C role, I'd rather they went after Murray instead (or better yet, go with Nuge/Gagner/Horcoff/Belanger as the 4 centers), but I also don't have a problem with Lander being on the team.

If he's physical and reasonable defensively I'd put him in the lineup over Lander. Also actually might push Jones a bit considering how cold he's gone.

IF he clears trade Josh Green for him. Send Lander to the AHL. Can't see us just taking another forward. Aren't we kinda stacked in OKC with forwards?

I used to watch him play in jr for the Kingston Frontenacs, his lack of work ethic has plagued him forever. If you think Hemsky or Penner play some uninspired hockey you should see this guy...3 strides and coast...3 more strides and coast....(Chris Stewart sure, but not Anthony)

He's also had 3 organizations give up on him (FLA, ATL, CAR). He's not good enough offensively for the top 6, not defensively good enough for 3rd line and doesn't bring it enough for the 4th line. I would stay away

The face that Stewart was a former 2003 1st rounder is enough to make Kevin Lowe's heart flutter in excitement.

Seriously, it seems like this team's either obtained or tried to obtain the first 2 rounds of that draft class over the years. It's like they're forever trying to correct the Pouliot/Parise mistake.

Anyone think Jones might be shopped at the deadline? His value will prob go down as he get pushed farther down the depth chart

He was given a chance to play last season and ended up with 14 goals and 39 points over 80 games. I must admit that I am underwhelmed with his AHL stats though. They are pretty crappy. Somebody will give him another chance.

I'd go for it.

Send Lander down and stack the OKC roster for a playoff run.

If work ethic is the problem, we should be staying far, far away.

+1... jones is a keeper for sure... can play lots of different styles, has decent speed, can pot the odd goal, has good size and throws his body around some.... he's essentally a perfect 3rd/4th liner IMO.... oh, and he's signed to a reasonable contract

Claim Murray place him on the fourth line and send Lander to the AHL. It makes to much sense for it to happen. Even if you have to make a minor depth deal trading a fringe prospect for a depth pick.

would like to see this for 5 or 6 games going into the TD.

Hall Gagner Hemsky
Smyth RNH Eberle
Horcoff Belanger Petrell
Eager Murray Jones

Go with 2 real scoring lines, 1 actual shutdown line and 1 real energy line. If Petrell can't hack it in that role put Jones back on it, although I would like to see Jones placed back in a role where he is an energy player rather than used in a defensive role. This would allow Jones to go back to a style that he flourish's in. This 4th line could be used for 12+ minutes a night and not be a detriment out there.

I`d prefer Ovechkin. So much more dynamic.

It would be nice to pry Malkin and Crosby out of pittsburgh in one trade while we're at it

I'm also a +1 on keeping jones. The guy brings it. He is a great bottom 6 guy signed at an affordable contract.
