Just a thought, with Chris Stewart appearing to be on the trading block, do you guys think he is a guy Kenny Holland should aggressively pursue? He is a very physical player that grinds to the net and works to create his offense. Although he is on pace for only a 16 goal season, a change in scenery might help him. He would fit in great as a top 9 forward on the Wings and would add a dimension of toughness and grit to a lineup that has been in need of a little "sandpaper". He has an affordable cap hit of $2.875 million and is a RFA after this year. This is a no risk type of move and we could likely land him for a draft pick and/or a mid level prospect. He could be a difference maker in determining how deep the Wings' playoff journey is. Just an idea. Thoughts?

I would love to see him here, but don't expect him to stay here for long if he needs a change of scenery this fast.

Gotta remember how young he is too, he has so much room to develop and become a Rick Nash style of player. I think his potential is tremendous and both Colorado and if this is the case St. Louis are giving up on him way too fast. I'd pull the trigger for sure.

I doubt he ends up here. I also wonder if he would make the team any better. He is a two line, three line tweener. I think we have a couple of those already. The Wings need in the short term a true top six sniper.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Better trade Stuart right after

This would never ever happen as long as he plays for the blues. 1. The blues are in. Race with Detroit for the central and they would never trade with each other.
