Yeah, regardless of the Thomas situation, Stuart could really be a good option for the 3rd pair with Bart. He's just about the ideal player for that role. I had initially been thinking that grabbing a different B's defender would've been good...Boychuk. But actually, Stuart is probably an even better fit. Boychuk was a RFA, and re-signed a few days ago, 2 yrs/$1.875m per. Stuart is also RFA, and I believe he was previously making $1.3m per. I'm not sure he's done much to drive his price up from there. I'd think somewhere between $1.5-2m should get it done.

However, I also can't see why Boston wouldn't be interested in re-signing him. He's still a good fit there. I'm not sure what the status of negotiations supposedly are, but I imagine they're trying to get something done.
