Truly not sure of the British style of play, whether or not it's more power and speed focused like the NHL or more creativity and open-ice focused like some of the other European leagues, but he could definitely stand to learn to put his body on the line.

Good to know he knows what he needs to do. Rutherford's been talking about signing a FA 4th liner with size, maybe he's been in talks with Stewart about being just that.

He'll love the open ice... Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll stay?

Claude Giroux played with Jagr. What are Tlusty's CGA points?

And that's good enough to be a player COACH in the British league. Anything less than 2 points a game is a disappointment for AStew, IMO.
You don't have to be a good player to be a good coach.

Your prospect that was taken 103rd overall in the 2011 Draft, Gregory Hofmann is doing very well.

6-5-1-6 to start the season with HC Davos. I imagine he is playing on a line with Joe Thornton.

Stewart picked up an assist in his first game in Britain. Nottingham won 2-1 in a shootout.

His next game and home debut will be Tuesday night.

Even if the British league is a lower level of competition, I think it's a good idea for Stewart to be there. He would be completely lost in the Eastern European game. And I'm not sure it would really serve his interests to spend time in a foreign culture, not speaking the language, getting middle-line ice time as a temporary visitor, and probably on a middling team that isn't already stocked with higher end players. He can work on his conditioning and skills anywhere -- I'd rather see him performing as an important player in important games, gaining his confidence and hopefully receiving some real coaching and leadership experience.

I honestly think doing just that in the DEL during the lockout was a HUGE factor in Cole taking the next step developmentally between the 2003-04 and 2005-06 seasons. The game opening up to embrace his skillset helped as well, but I really think that confidence that Cole established in playing a top role in Germany was the big difference in him staying a 40-45 point power forward and becoming that point-per-game one he was right out of the lockout, settling into that 50-60 point guy slot long term.

Thornton has only played in the last 3 games and Hofmann was doing well on his own before that. Not sure if he's with him now, though.

Play him with Staal and Semin. Let him keep this offensive game going. Then we can all go troll the Leafs fans and talk about how good Paradis is.
