Stuart has been hinting to the media for an entire year how he wanted to go back to his family, how hard it has been on him and his family, etc etc etc.

Number of teams near his family: 1

Number of dmen we could get through ufa or trade or even our own prospects: lots

There has never been more leverage in all of sports history since the pully was invented. If Stuart wanted to play the UFA card, then well have fun spending the next 3 years of your life away from your family.
