I could see Nashville as a surprising contender. Stuart is not an expensive player, which does matter there, and there's a bit of an identity crisis in NSH right now. Not a bad team, certainly, they are 4th seed after all, but kinda... flavorless. Vanilla. Guy like Stu could do for them what Aaron Ward did for us -- apply a bit of recognizable personality to a kinda middling decent, vanilla team and make 'em stand out more. And because he's mastered the Julien system, he could probably handle the defensive requirements of a team that's contending based on the lowest GA in the West as well. A good defensive package with some snarl, toughness, attitude and leadership could be a strong supporting piece if they decide to make a push.

But then, as I've already intimated, I don't really know the West that well.
