I wouldn't mind Stuart coming back in the off season for a reasonable price (around $2mil).
I understand the Wings argument. Babcock has been pushing Holland to improve their defense and not subtract from it. He wants upgrades to Ericsson, et al. Babcock doesn't want to regress within his top 4. I would take their argument as commentary to where they saw his skill fit within their team. And yes, it does speak to his not creating waves there. I do think Stuart would be the first one pushed out of their top 4 if they made a high profile acquisition, but that they would absolutely desire him as a #5 (~$2.5mil).
