One could argue that given his skillset, he's even less preferable than Desjardins or Handzus on the bottom lines. Talent wise, at least in my eyes, he is inferior to Sheppard; that is another road block in his way.
What I see is that Wingels is very capable of fulfilling a 4th line role, but being a very able and versatile top 6 substitute for short periods of time. I could see him as a regular 4th liner while being held in reserve.
Out of curiosity, have you heard of any interest in Stuart by the Sharks? Not interest from Stuart in returning of which we are all aware.
