Maybe he is just using it as a negotiation ploy like lidstrom did.


Negotiating ploy? Nick's a 43 year old man who wants to see his kids grow up. He can't play captain forever, eventually he has to play dad and husband.
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lidstrom has played games in the past about "oh, I might move back to Sweden" Even the perfect human is all about the dollars. To think otherwise is naive.

The thing that doesn't make sense to me is that if they went to the court and said. If the kid moves to Michigan, her mother will remain married to a guy pulling in millions of dollars a year. This is in the benefit of the kid.

I would imagine that would make an easy case to win. If I was Stuart, I would also just offer to buy a house for the real father to live in rent free in Michigan. Unless the other guy makes 7 figures.

That's not really a benefit to take the child away from her father. It really is amazing sometimes how the court says they are doing things in the best interest of the child when in reality it's what's best for one or both of the parents. I say good for Brad not pulling her away from her dad.

So what we're getting at is his wife's ex-husband is responsible for Stuart leaving us this offseason? *******. Which leads me to believe that he most likely as an ******* before all of this!

Must be a Sharks' fan. ;)

The reality is you have no idea what the actual claim or situation was. I could totally understand him seriously returning to his native country to raise his kids there and be with his family. I can also see an agent using that possibility as leverage.

To think you could possible know it was all about the dollars is extremely presumptuous.

I certainly remember the stories claiming he was "reconsidering" the possibility of moving to Sweden. He has done that for as long as he has been earning the larger contracts. Every contract year I have heard stories about this.

It wasn't every contract year.

I'm not saying there weren't stories of this. I remember it too. But you're assuming it's purely a ploy for more money and not a legitimate consideration of taking his family and raising his kids back in his native Sweden.

Either way if it was 100% about the money he could have got way more than 6.7 from another team.

Not to mention that it assumes that moving is necessary to stay married. That casts Mrs. Stuart in a bad light as well. Not cool.

Pretty sure Nick only wanted to come back if he knew within himself he was able to perform at a level that was up to his expectations (as he exemplified last year). The guy is extremely hard on himself, I guarantee you he could play for a while still, but if he doesn't think he's good enough, he's gonna retire.

In any job, professional athlete included, money is going to play a major role in dictating how you make your decisions. Thanks for the update.

And I still think it's human nature to want to go back home after retiring, wherever you may be from. IMO.

Cue the, “Oh, s***” alert: Expressen’s Linus Hugosson let me know via Twitter that he spoke to Red Wings director of European scouting Hakan Andersson recently, and Andersson told Hugosson that Brad Stuart is definitely leaving the Wings this summer.

Stuart leaving

Sadly we all saw this coming. I'm sure he would stay here if he could but family has to come first always. Will miss you Stuie.


It's a shame, he was doing a signing today and they advertised that it was his first since the 08 win...will be his last as a Wing too. :(

I agree but want to add that the law of diminishing returns eventually applies to money, also. Lidstrom is one of the top money earners all time in the NHL with something like $97m earned over his career. I'm sure he has managed his money better than Scott Storch. At this point in his life, time is now more important than money, and probably has been for a few years now.

Lets face it: Years ago he had already accomplished everything he could ever dream about accomplishing as a Detroit Red Wing. We are fortunate to still have him.

He probably knows as much about your personal situation and job choices as you do Lidstrom's.

Now you are just reaching far beyond logic here.

reaching beyond logic?

In what universe do you know anything about what is going on in Lidstrom's family life?

You made a huge assumption on what Lidstrom's true intentions were, based on very little information. My logic is solid.
