Perhaps.

The kicker for them is that they need a guy who legitimately can be a 4/5 playoff guy. They could try to rent him. If they look towards picking up a player with years on his deal, they need it to be low priced with Pietro, Shattenkirk, and Berglund RFA's.

I always figured that they'd wait until the offseason to move Stewart. Now, if they could get a 'replacement for the role', a legit 4/5 playoff guy, and a sweetener, I could maybe see it.

I remember quotes from DB and Shero when the Neal trade went down saying they've had a list of power forwards they keep an eye on throughout the season.
Have to think Stewart is on it. And with Redden being exposed for what he is, a guy who's played in the minors and not ready for a top 4 role if ever. And Cole not there yet, we match up as trade partners.
Interesting
