Then why is he barely the 5th or 6th defenseman on the team he's on now? At this point it's arguable if it's him or McQuaid as the 6th d-man, and it honestly seems like McQ has jumped him on the depth chart, pushing Stuart to the 7th spot.

Trade him for a conditional pick, as others have mentioned, and pick up a cheaper veteran 3rd pairing guy for that depth. And, also like others have mentioned, I can't see him going directly to MTL, but I could see Team X acquiring him and then moving him to the Habs afterwards.
