Heck, is ANYONE on this team living up to their potential who ain't wearing a letter or who ain't in a contract year beyond Tarasenko?
Oshie: Leads team in +/- at +6, 6 points and really doing a great job supporting his line mates who are on fire by setting them up and carrying more defensive weight
Bouwmeester: 5 assists, +5, logging monster ice time, moving the puck really well with Petro
Sobotka: Really strong on face-offs, as always very versatile helping team on multiple lines at multiple positions
Halak: Whatever his reasons, he is playing well. If he keeps it up and gets the Blues a cup, I'll be happy.
Roman Polak: He has a goal, whatever else he has done or not done, that is far above his potential
There may be others who are playing below their potential on the Blues this season, but none has as much potential with as little production as Stewart. The TC stated it was only 6 games in. We all know its early. Still, I have watched every minute of every game. I barely even notice Stewart is playing. He is a non-factor most of the time. He'll show flashes of effort on offense, making nice attempts but failing to connect with Roy. But it is only flashes. If he goes on and scores 12 in 12, then he'll finally be using the skill set everyone here knows he has. I'm more concerned with how he does over 98+ games (82 the most important 16 or more to win the cup). What I have seen, or more to the point, not seen is not promising. It is only 7 games, true. Just looking at his stats, that could be explained by bad luck and a drought. But I want to see effort every game. He's played 7 games at 10+ minutes a game and only given 2 minutes of what looks like true effort. That is enough for me to say somebody needs to light a fire under him.
