Not a bad deal for Stewart.  He’ll probably have to perform a bit more consistently.

What I like about this is how many idiot Blues fans this will piss off.

The guys put up 28 goals and 64 pts. w/ the Avs in his first full season before moving the St. Louis. Really had Stewart pegged as a potential pt/game powerhouse, but alas he must have been profiled to fill a role in with the Blues.

Never saw that coming. Maybe he’s still coming. I dunno.

Damn, I was hoping he would have been available.
