Some do, some don't. That particular trade was largely made to fit Kaberle under the cap.

Stuart's value to a cup contender really comes down to how that team is structured on the back end, and capwise.

He's probably among the 5 best 5/6 defencemen (as a role, not as just a guy that happens to be playing on the bottom pairing) and is making premium money for someone in that role.

If a team needs a guy that plays that role and can fit the cap then he's really the best guy for the job. Otherwise, not so much.
