JR mentioned yesterday that Stewart worked out like crazy in the offseason and has lost 20 pounds and is 'noticeably thinner' in the face. Stewart admitted to getting tired in the 3rd period quite a bit last season (not sure what his excuse was for dogging it full games), so hopefully this helps with his energy.
Yeah, Stewart himself admitted that he was tired in third periods last year and then noted that despite playing 30+ minutes a game over there, he was just getting going late in games. That can only help.
Every so often it's always something else with Stewart.
He's REALLY going to turn things around this time...honest this time...no foolin'. Doesn't he say that every few months after he has been pretty much non-existent? And then nothing really changes?
Being in better shape is something you would have thought would have been the first thing he would have tried when he was sucking last year.
Talk is cheap. Show me. Do something on the ice. Please.
