I was really thinking that Stewart would be moved at the deadline. Is the issue his relationship with Hitchcock or is he just not working?
Right now the issue I think is he is playing so badly they wouldn't get value for a 2 time 28 goal scorer with size and a lot of upside. He is also in a contract year so that probably lessened value
For me on far too many nights his Play is all on the perimeter and I hope they can sign him in the summer for a reasonable rate for one year and hope that this abysmal year was just a blip on the radar. If he doesn't pick it up I would quickly try and make the best deal I could for him and get him out of town though.
As for the rest of this year if he doesn't pick up his play he would start the playoffs in the press box and when he went in if he still played like shit he would be out again because you really don't have time to fuck around, if he can't play on one of your top 3 lines his attitude isn't right to help you on the 4th
