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.
DW was disappointed in Stuart in the '06 season, and DW tends not to pursue players who have already worn the Sharks uniform. That said, Stuart is pratically a different player today.

I have heard nothing specifically about DW desiring Stuart. I know that DW is tremendously confident in his prospect pool of defenseman. The intention being that Boyle-Murray-Burns-Vlasic are the core. Doherty, Demers or Braun would be taking Boyle's spot, Sefton, Petrecki or Wrenn would be taking Murray's spot. There are, of course, other prospect D-men who could surprise...

I imagine it would be like SJ re-signing Ian White. It would be for fewer dollars and a reduced role; #4/5 vs #2/3...
