Lydman has done well in the second pairing role as a defensive d-man. There is really no need for the Ducks to trade him to bring in Stuart. Even if you wanted to make the swap, Lydman is not going to get a top six forward in return unless they take a leap on someone having a poor year or years.

Brad Stuart doesn't give the Ducks anything they don't already have in Lydman.
Their blue line is awful and Fowler isn't suited for the competition he is being put up against. Staurt is much more suited. If Stuart can hold the line with a -10 it would be a vast improvement.

Fowler on the other had. Reduce his minutes a tad and make sure he has a minimum of 55 percent offensive zone starts and he should be ok.
