So he is pretty much a additional thug we can put on the ice?

I see he has a whole load of Pim, and few points?

I know nothing about this guy, never even heard his name otherwise

Stewart is like a Kostopoulos...as un-biased as that sounds(for me)

- Will do anything for his team

- Is Fast

- Grinder

- Blocks shots

- Fights

- Has some nice hand work.

Like Kostopoulos.

I feel so lost. I was so sick last night and missed the game (first time ever!!!) since when is the GDT closed so soon? and now Habs call up this guy I have no idea who he is. I don't even remember him at training camp. : /

Actually this guy is much more then a thug in my opinion, actually he reminds me a bit of a Tie Domi, Steve Begin type player (with more size of course) he's more of a third or fourth line grinder, who is a good defensive (role) player with toughness and who can fight, but he is a good enough skater and has enough skill that he can produce if put on the right scoring line....For examples with the Cincinatti Cyclones he led the team in scoring during last years playoffs and in his final year of Junior with the Peterborough Petes (the year Peterborough defeated rookie Sergei Kostitsyn and the London Knights in the OHL finals and went on to the Memorial Cup Tourney..but anyways during that season he was mainly on the third line but for a month or two they had put him on the top line along side Steve Downie and Daniel Ryder and Stewart did not look out of place at all

I went down into the Archives ( :blink: ) and here is what Devils fury had to say last spring (May 2007):

He sort of reminds me of a Steve Downie, Aaron Downey, Steve Begin type player......I didn't see any games of his this year but when he played for the Peterborough Petes last year I thought of him as being a pretty good two way player who can skate and chip in with the odd goal, and come back defensively and cause turn overs as well...when he was with the Petes, he mainly played on the third line and played a better defensive game and rougher style game (kinda like Downie) but the odd time they put him on a offensive line with Downie and either Jordan Morrison or Daniel Ryder and he did not look out of place at all...To me even though Stewart's not as well known as our other prospects, I think he is big enough (at 6 foot 1) strong enough and probably a better skater then what his stats tend to show.....

re: the 2 call-ups:

  • Bulldogs season is essentially over; they aren't making the play-offs
  • Habs must have full roster room allowance; may as well use it
  • you never know (knock on wood) team could run into a swath of injuries during the play-offs -- you have to have some names to fill out the game sheet with in that case; may as well get them working with the club in the meantime, getting on the same page, feeling comfortable around the guys, learning expectations and systems, etc.
  • My guess is Chipchura would have been one of the two, but is injured (yes?)
  • Also (minor point), as an incentive for these guys to be keen for next season; and a closer, earlier look by Carbo now too, etc.
Not a big deal (well, except for the two maybe!); but it all makes sense. They aren't about to take anyone's playing roster spot. And BG/Carbo will be loathe to have Stewart taking a valuable game sheet spot just so he can be nailed to the bench in case he is needed for a fight. That's not what Stewart is being groomed for, nor what he is all about.

Or is this (at least partially) a short-term response to a rumoured flu bug (Kovalev and Grabovski)?

I thought you would appreciate it. ;)

lol yeah maybe...as long as Montreal gives him a chance and I'm not totally wrong about the type of player I think he is or can be

Thanks, he is so unknown WJ didn't even create a prospect page for him (which I realized after searching for 10 minutes for it, first manually then using the search bar). Anyways, I just copied WJ's template but forgot to change the link.

Anyways, it's now fixed.

I think that he will get to play in one of the two final regular season games.

Otherwise I don't understand the call up from Hamilton. I would assume that until the playoffs are over that Montreal can call up players from Hamilton. Although maybe it more of a Hamilton issue with Hamilton not getting to the playoffs you would rather have your two best AHL players at the team meetings and training with the team in case they are needed due to illness or injury.

Why not give the player a chance to play for Begin or Smoke or Lapierre for ONE game before the playoffs start? Sure the NHL player is better but the two remaining games are not must wins and in fact winning since Montreal is 2nd for sure in the East. Might help one of these players be fresher for the playoffs with one game off. Only small chance 1st in the East after the Pens won tonight putting them 2 up on Montreal.
