How does Stuart feel about Phoenix? It is close to California.

Could be an option if Doan is dealt.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

If memory serves me right, Stuie passed up a better offer from Calgary because he didn't want his step-daughter to have to go through customs alone when she went to visit her dad. Also, the reason for the NTC in part of his stay here was due to not wanting her to have to change schools part way through.

I'm guessing that the original plan was for his wife to come live here, but it didn't pan out. There could be all sorts of reasons- maybe his step-daughter's dad didn't allow it or there were other issues that were out of his hands. I don't know. It's just speculation.

I do know that when I read that about him, that I got a totally new respect for him. A man who puts his family first is a great man in my book.

The way the sharks have dismantled the redwings this year so far it would be stupid to trade Stuart there

speaking of Beauchemin...

3,5 a year... not to shabby for him. he's decent but I'm not sure that it reflects his real value...

Yeah we can nix any possibilities of Beauchemin as any kind of viable option now, i'm not sure about 3.5 mil a season though. I'd be more comfortable around 2.5 for the kind of player he is and his age. A lot of his value is in his play not in his production. He's still managed a +1 this season regardless of Anaheim's horrible start, and hes quickly approaching 100 hits and 100 shots blocked.

Brad Stuart >>>>>>>>>>>>> Willie Mitchell


Agree,but if Stuart's departure is inevitably Mitchell/Greene could fill his role+simply don't see us trading with San Jose and Anaheim

None of the LA teams look like a good destination for him but I think I'd bet on Anaheim.

TRADE HIS RIGHTS!!! Love stewie to death but this is a business decision. If he wants to play in Cali then trade. Get anything we can for him, picks whatever. Don't think he'll go to the sharks....Their D is pretty set after the Burns addition. It'll be Ducks/Kings....thinking Ducks most likeley....could use another defensive D-man.

I'm not sure I agree. If he is it's not by a wide margin.

The biggest drawback with Mitchell is his health. But he plays a game similar to Stuart's and his honestly more physical in front of his own net. Plus he's got great reach with that Chara sized stick.

He's been great for LA this year. I don't know that they'd want to get rid of him unless it was a swap for Stuart. they need veteran presence and a stabilizing force and he's been both of those.

Wait, Stuart hasn't been playing for a west coast team since the trade deadline?

Yeah my sense is Anaheim too. But it's still three hours away from SJ.

We should've traded him to Anaheim at the beginning of the season when Bobby Ryan was on the block. There's no sense losing such a valuable player for nothing.

Agreed. His passing has been brutal and he hasn't hit a guy hard in forever. Stewie was great in both runs to the finals minus one important game... but I believe it's time to move on after this season.

Every team in NHL has at least 2-3 D man like Stuart. Feeling the void left by him should be fairly easy to do. I personally don't think he will be any better than he was a few years ago. Stuart can go to SoCal or NoCal does not mater. Iam positive thise offseason Wings will see improvements in all areas.
Go Wings !
