We may as well have traded for Bob Murray. I will miss Stuart. Good solid reliable dman. Signing Suter will ease the pain though.
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

Yeah Holland has his work cut out for him this off season. We've now lost 3 of our top 4 D-men in the last 2 off seasons and have only gained white and quincey. Suter is a must, but we're gonna need a second strong D-man to be brought in as well.

Would have been better if it were Doug Murray. :D



Good luck, Stewie! Thanks for the great years you spent here. You've left us with a whole lot of highlight reel hip checks.




A big hole has just been left in our defense.

Glad to see him gone. Last year he stunk up the whole blue line most likely to be traded. He got his wish going to the fkn Guppies, dont let the door hit you on the way out Brad.

Ansar Khan is also reporting that the Wings have no interest in Murray. SJ was up against the roster limit, and needed to unload a player to make the trade work.

Wings have no plans for Murray. Sharks needed to unload a player to stay at the 50-man roster limit.

I was hoping it was the other Murray also, thanks for your services Brad you will be missed.

Now we can look forward to BlueAdams capgeek lines thread without Stuart on this team. :lol:

Knew this was coming, nice to get at least something for Stuart. However, Smith will make people forget about Stuart quick, just like he did when he filled in for E.

Stuart was a good solider, wish him the best.

I really like Brad Stuart, on and off the ice. He's a quality player, and he will definitely be missed. We knew he was going, but it's still sad. I think he enjoyed being a Wing, although I am pretty sure he never, ever wanted to leave SJ in the first place. He was forced to, by the trade for Thornton, to Boston.

So, he's back home with his family. We are poorer for the loss of him on our blue line - like we need to lose anyone else? - but I wish him all the luck in the world unless he's playing against us. :D

Thanks for your services, Brad. :thumbup:

According to the freep writeup the Wings have no intention of signing the slug that came with the pick.

We all knew it was coming but tough to see it actually happen. At least we got a pick, better than nothing, and another piece to use to acquire someone else.

You look at his performance in 2010-11 and compare it to 2011-12 when he made it verbally known that he wanted to leave.

The performance was night and day. He made Ericcson look like Nicky in comparison. He skated away from the puck, made little effort to maintain puck possesion and although everyone looked crappola in the Playoffs this year, he was one of the worst out there.

I dont understand the love fest for him when it was obvious he had zero intention of playing hard last season.

stats are games played, goals, assists, points, PIM, +/-

2010-11 Detroit Red Wings NHL 67 3 17 20 40 4




2011-12 Detroit Red Wings NHL 81 6 15 21 29 16


He played less the year prior and had almost the same numbers, I dont look at plus minus because that is a team stat. He wasnt helping as much and definitely wasnt manning up on guys like he did in the previous year.

Stuart was always professional. I think you’re being too harsh.

My only criticism of Stuart was he was a little too mellow for a physical D-man, for lack of a better description. Plug that #3-4 position with someone a little more hateful to play against. Even Quincey has more edge to his game.

That being said, I really liked Stewie. He was steady, from all reports an amazing team-mate, and worked hard. He won’t be easy to replace.

Best of luck Brad!!!!

im not sad nor happy...yet

stuart was pretty consistent. solid guy. Looked like he was slowing down a bit though

I would of thought stuart was worth more then a 7th and andrew murray though. I guess its not that bad considering its just rights

lets see what you got mr holland. replacing lids and stuart.

I'm pretty pissed that Sharks almost got a freebie here,but at least we've got a pick in return.
I don't bother about his points much,cause he's a defensive d-man with extremely limited PP time,but if you want to talk about stats,here are some:

2010-11: 131 Hits,114 Blocks

2011-12: 177 Hits,115 Blocks

That's still good enough for me
