Brad Stuart's head was already in SJ and I can't blame him.

He had no contract. Imagine him giving 110% for Detroit then getting concussed in the playoffs. He didn't have many options team wise. All of his eggs in the SJ basket.

Not happy about it, but I understand it. Stuart was a warrior for us for years after we acquired him and I wish him the best in his future. Great player.

edit: also, those mentioning trading him at any point -- Holland had zero leverage with SJ and that was basically his only choice. We were better off keeping him for a playoff run.
