STL adds here. I really like Stewart (have done it for years) but he is coming of his worst season ever, while Gleason is putting up solid seasons over and over again. He's a key part of their defence, he signed a new deal last season etc. So his value is high while Stewart's value is lower (due to his worst season ever and so on).

Basically a key d-man is getting traded, if you ask Carolina and objective fans outside of the Hurricane fanbase, and a roster player is getting dealt from STL part. Albeit a very good one. He's a real good player but he is coming of his worst season as a pro (as I've stated a few times already) and he's not integral to your team.

This makes it a ''bad'' trade for Carolina, unless STL adds to Stewart.

Ducks don't need Dmen, they need a 2nd line to play Ryan.

hence the ''someone like'' part. there's other players with similar goalscoring touch.

Unless Rutherford signs a veteran UFA defenseman, I can't see how the Canes can really afford to part ways with Gleason (plus he has a NTC). Right now, the Canes signed defensemen are comprised of two veterans (Gleason and Pitkanen) and a bunch of inexperience:

Jay Harrison: Journeyman with 2.5 seasons under his belt.
Jamie McBain: 24 yo with 2 seasons under his belt
Justin Faulk: 20 yo with 1 season under his belt
Bobby Sanguinetti: 24yo with no seasons under his belt
Derek Joslin: 25yo without a full season played (and he sucks).

Rookies Dumoulin and Murphy will also have a shot.


Pitkanen is good to miss at least 10 games each season and isn't really the leader/mentor type either, so the Canes either need to add some veteran presence via UFA/Trade and/or keep Gleason or it will be a circus on the back end.

Didn't Gleason just sign an extension? If true, CAR wouldn't trade him

Gleason wont be moved but if he was then St. Louis would definitely have to add. Quality shut down like D men playing in a top 4 role are more important then a power forward who under achieved last year.
