Bruins need to re-sign Stuart

Brad Stuart has been on fire lately. He has 6 goals and 6 assists this season and 4 goals and 2 assists in his last 5 games. He is a perfect number 2 defenseman behind Chara. He's such a great skater with a powerful shot. Always seems to make a good defensive play and makes good decisions with the puck. On occasion he will turn the puck over but he is, without a doubt, much more valuable than the 3 million dollar man Paul Mara. The Bruins should have made a pitch to resign Stuart at the beginning of the season instead of giving Mara another year on his contract. If the Bruins can sign this guy for 3.5-4.0 million it is a steal. I would love to see him back next year, but I doubt it will happen, since 10.5 million is already tied up for Mara and Chara.

They have to. Stuart leave an opening saying that he loves to play in Boston. Does it mean that he will be re-sign? I don't know but the fact that he's an UFA at the end of the season mean that the B's will have to overpay for his services. That said, Having Chara and Stuart can only help peoples like Alberts, Mark Stuart and Lashoff. It's more an investement then a spending. If the B's can re-sign him; the blueline will be in good shape for many years to come.
