Like everyone else I knew it was coming but when it happens, it stings a little. I have loved Stuart since he joined us and has been a key part in our success. Worst case scenario for the D corps was (imho) Lids and Stuart left at the same time...Good luck with the sharks Brad and I feel somewhat bad that I'll be cursing your name soon....Also good good luck to Ken and Co. as well. Now its time to see what these upstairs boys are made of.:boxing:

So many folks in this thread don't seem to understand the concept of trading a player's rights. This is NOT the same as trading a signed player where you command an equal return on the player being shipped out.

Don't understand how anyone could be mad at this. He wasn't going to re-sign with the wings regardless, so its a good thing we got something in return.

Either let him walk as a UFA and watch him sign with the Sharks, OR trade his rights and get value for him. Its a no brainer.

Exactly right. If anything, San Jose did us a favour.

That's what I was thinking. I have a newfound respect for the Sharks. They knew they were getting him either way, or at least were among the finalists (LA and Anaheim being the unlikely suitors), but they still offered us something.

I looked at Murray's stats, and they don't seem too atrocious. They dipped this year but so did the Sharks in general. I think we should definitely try to sign him and keep him as bottom 6 insurance. He's done around 10 points over 40 games. Not a game changer, but could be another energy guy.

San Jose did both us and them a favour.They got the right to make a deal with him before the 1st of July and avoid potential bidding war with other Cali teams.I don't think LA is interested in Stuart,but Anaheim on the other hand...

After all,there wouldn't be any issues to move his family(stepdaughter included)a bit south within the State of California.

I don't understand why we couldn't swing Stuart for schultz. That seemed like a fair deal.

I think Schultz is more valuable then Stuart. And you know Kenny let his pal Stewie pick where he wanted to go

Wouldn't be surprised to see that 7th, Murray, and another pick go to the Ducks for Schultz though

I dont think so. Stuart is a proven veteran with a Stanley Cup ring. Schultz is a highly touted, but unproven prospect. It seems even to me.

I think it's more likely that Holland isn't interested in Schultz.

Yeah I know I know, Stuart, even though his stats have been ok, he's just looked like a shell of his former self this last year, looked like he was on a downswing, and shultz looks like hes on a big upswing....highly touted prospect and has like a max of 19 years in him while Stuart has a max of like 8....I'd personally rather get Stuarts rights than Schultz's but i think young talent is just more valued on the NHL market often times

According to Dreger expected to sign a 3 year deal either today or tomorrow. Not unexpected obviously.

Best of luck to Brad....except when he's playing Detroit. :sly:

According to @HChockeytalk Stuart has signed a 3 year contract with the Sharks. Should be announced today or tomorrow.

Darren Dreger also is reporting this.

Oh, there will be. Sad, but true. It'll be the same idiots that boo Hossa when he did nothing but fulfill his obligation, which was a huge risk in the first place given the 1-year term in the prime of his career.

Hossa signed with a major rival, hence the booing. Stuart did the same, hence there will be booing. Neither player owed us anything, but we couldn't afford Hossa so Stuart deserves it more than Hossa. Give it 3 years and no one will care anymore, same thing happened to Fedorov.
Most people are fans of the team's well being not the players.

With Stewie making his way back to San Jose, howf****** bad does the Thornton trade look now? Jumbo for Sturm and Primeau, yikes. And yet, Boston won the cup before San Jose did :lol: Weird thing this hockey, you just never know.
