While it's ok to try and eat a few minutes here and there with him on D, unless a Babs Underhill can go beyond what improvement was made with Brian Boyle, Stu can't handle the skating end of it enough. MAYBE jf we had another Leetch in his prime skating circles around everyone making up for that, maybe, and even then do you really want to go there?

I do see he could be a 4th line W for us.
