Near the trade deadline, good players nearing UFA are dirt cheap. This team already looks like a playoff team (knock on wood) next season but we could stand to add a few more pieces to be cup favorites. If you add near the deadline, you give up less and you're only on the hook for a portion of their yearly salary. Though it's a risky move to be patient like that, I could see how it would be attractive to a budget team such as ourselves.
I don't necessarily mean that Stewart is the one traded, just that him regaining top 6 form makes it feasible to trade someone.
