At his absolute best, Chris Stewart is 30 times the player Steve Ott is, but Chris Stewart is only at his best about 5% of the time.
Ott is generally useless too, except he's gritty and he can hit. He's an upgrade over Stewart, sadly.
Steve Ott has a lot of upside. He's just spent alot of time on a crap team and he's starting to come out of his shell. I don't think people really get the amount of pressure you fall onto when you go from the worst team in the league that you've played on for years and years literally overnight onto a team going for the Cup. I like his ability to hit and his durability.
I'm more surprised that people aren't sitting here saying "You know, If Bergy would get just a little faster and use his body a little more, we could have won." It wasn't too long ago that Bergy was putting up points like candy. Now he's like a drifting pylon with occasional bursts of brilliance. People say Roy have 'hands of stone', well, this guy's got a body of stone lol.
