Gazing Stu

By this point in time I'm sure you are all aware that the Jets have signed defenseman Mark Stuart to a 4-year, $10.5 million contract.  As I'm sure many of you know, I've been more than willingly to express my distaste with a lot of Stuart's play this season.  But for right now, I'm going to put that behind me and do my best to defend the extension without using a number at all....or using the words "character" or "shot blocking" as an argument.

In the end Olli Jokinen, Devin Setoguchi, and even Ondrej Pavelec showed up when it mattered most, and snagged the Jets the extra point.
