Wouldn't mind the move if older defensemen come off the books as well.. Stuart is solid.

WOW a player that misses his family goes to a team that's near his family...NEVER heard of that before.

If DW still overpays him, he is the worst negotiator in the league.

That means Murray will be traded.

I'd be fine with that. Stuart is a much more complete d-man.

If the motivation is to move closer to home, that really limits his options, which means he'll likely take a pay cut to do it. I'm sure DW will do it if he can. I don't think White is getting an extension. Would love to see Stuart take his place. He'll be a great leadership add to the team.

Wouldn't mind this at all. Stuart was always one of my favorite Sharks.

Gotta say, I wouldn't object to this at all. Would add good leadership and veteran presence, and he already knows Marleau, Clowe, and Murray (wow, strange those are the only three left from that season!) so there's that. Would be neat to have him back in teal.

Veteran status does not equal leadership. Please cite specific examples of leadership if you want to claim a player as having it. Peers acknowledging his support/mentorship, role modeling, etc. That sort of thing.

I'm aware veteran status doesn't equal leadership (e.g., Wallin), thank you.

And I could be wrong in saying Stuart has both, I'm not saying I'm the arbiter of truth. It's simply my inference. I don't have citations (nor, honestly, do I feel like going back to 2005 to search for them), just my opinion.

I do have rumor-based counterexamples. The fact that he was the one being shopped at the time of the JT trade is a huge clue and not a rumor.

It's a good option if DW wants to send Murray out now if the Wings are willing to send Stuart for a 4th rounder or something now. Or send Murray to the wings now for Stuart + a player or something.

I'd definitely be up for signing Stuart. Agree it'd make Murray expendable. He could be packaged up in the offseason to get us a top 6 fwd.

If Stuart's willing to take a discount, I'd sign him at Murray's cap hit ($2.5m on a 2 year deal). If Stuart wants a 3 year deal, then a $2.25m cap hit.

lol, I'm just saying if it got us a forward + stuart it might make sense. Obviously sending him elsewhere would make more sense.

You're basing this off possible rumors from 6 years ago? We don't need a captain-level leadership (not that JT is the epitome of a captain) - likely just someone to take Murray's spot as the 4/5 dman...

No way. Deal Murray to the East.

If DW wants to trade Murray at the TDL and replace him with Stuart, then he should trade a 7th. Not like the Wings - nor any team besides the Kings or Ducks - have much leverage here. We'd just wait until the offseason.

First of all, someone being shopped doesn't mean they're a locker room problem (Heatley going to Minnesota for instance); they could be simply a victim of circumstance or what the other team desired. Honestly, do any of us really know what goes on in the locker room? Not really.

Second of all, who says he hasn't developed into one? If he were an issue here, he very well could have changed his attitude. You're basing your vitriol based on rumors from six years ago.

Lastly, this is a pointless argument. There was no reason to pick out such a negligible, subjective part of my response.

I think it also had to do with the fact that Stuart wasn't the same player after the Shelley hit. How his leadership qualities factored in I don't know, but I assume that played a big part.

He's doing something right seeing as the Wings are wanting to talk contract extension with him.

I wouldn't mind Stuart coming back in the off season for a reasonable price (around $2mil).

That'd be great, we could use a scorpio on the team. Wouldn't want to ditch Douglass though
