I agree with what you are saying here. TL spank the hell out of every other team that isnt Astralis. TL is gradually regaining their confidence again, which is nice, and i think with that we will have plenty of TL vs Astralis matches (finals).
I hope before they remove anyone from the team, they will fine tune each players' role so that they can perform to their potential.
Regarding stewie, i think Thorin sums it up very well in Richard Lewis show "by the numbers". If i remember correctly, Thorin says that he thinks stew is trying to do too much, because when the rest of TL members crumble (against Astralis) he tries to make plays that have high reward, but also has high risk. And i think he also said that it is a great mentality to have, and that it seems as tho stew is the only one that gets that instinct when they get their backs against the wall. But he also mentions that his plays are also not the best at every occasion, even though he has the correct mindset. Ofc im not quoting exactly what he said, but i think it makes a lot of sense, just based on how TL play.
