    Stewart would be good piece for buffelo, Montreal, Philadelphia and Vancouver

    Habs had interest in Stewart when on the avs, and if he’s available now they’d be crazy not to inquire. Being a big guy who can find the back of the net it’s exactly what Mtl needs, and 4.15 mil for a potential 30 goal scorer. Forget hemsky, if I were Bergevin I’d be making a strong pitch for Stewart

    If the Habs wish to trade Max Pacioretty. I think a deal of Chris Steawart and Patrik Berglund for Pacioretty and a draft pic.

    Stewart would fit in great on the Rangers. His contract is affordable, he’s an excellent power forward that brings skill, size, and grit. We lost a lot of grit when we gave up Prust, and then when we gave up Clowe. Stewart would help fill that void, but of course we would have to give up Cally for him. Callahan wants way too much on his contract, and the blues have been one team that has shown some very consistent interest and has had talks with him. I hope the rangers can pull this trade off

    Max Pacioretty is not worth that much. Your taking about Stewart, Berglund, & a Draft pic….That’s insanity

    Stewart is the opposite of gritty. Just because a player fights doesn’t make him tough, or gritty. He gets moved off the puck by hungrier, smaller players regularly. He has zero heart, and is best suited for a non-contender where he can fly under the radar, put up misleading but slightly impressive numbers, and make his $3-5MM/yr. The reason he’s so streaky is because he doesn’t give 100% effort consistently. He’ll score 5 goals in 7-8 games, and then go weeks without showing up. I would gladly trade him for a player with less skill/upside that plays hard and has any resemblance of hockey instincts. The thought of a Callahan/Stewart trade literally makes me drool as a Blues fan despite the fact that Callahan could simply be a rental. Taking Stew and his money off a roster where he doesn’t deserve to be is a win in itself. Please somebody take him…

    hey Zach:

    You are right please trade him. The St. Louis Blues having no idea on what type of player Stewy is. They are ruining him! He needs to be in the East where they play real hockey and with a centre man who knows how to play with wingers!!

    Well if he were sent to the East, to anybody other than Boston and Pittsburgh, it would put him exactly where I said he belongs…on a non-contender. He has made a career off of “potential” but his lack of consistent effort has cemented him as an average NHL forward who will always be a liability in his own zone, and probably shouldn’t log serious minutes for a good team. He could be a good player for the other 13 teams in the East that don’t have a chance at a cup, so you’re right on there.

    It sounds like the team you back is afraid to play against him. Maybe that’s why you want him to go to a non-contender. Stewart has 15 goals with less time on the ice then other players. He will do well in the east as they play his style of hockey.

    If they were afraid to play against him, why would they trade him? Makes no sense. It’s nothing personal against him, and you are right, he doesn’t fit well in Hitchcock’s system. However, I feel like he could if he chose to do so. It’s not an inability to do well in his current system, it’s a decision. That’s why it’s so frustrating. He turns it on and off when he chooses. Why would anybody want that? Healthy scratch in the playoffs. Enough said. I wish him the best, but glad he’s gone.
