PIERRE LEBRUN: CANADIAN PRESS

Boston: The Bruins' attempts to re-sign Brad Stuart have hit a wall because the pending UFA defenceman politely told them he doesn't want to stay. It's entirely in his rights to want to play the free-agent market for the first time in his career. This will be rookie Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli's first big test, how to make a splash with this trade. There are plenty of suitors for Stuart, led by Edmonton, and right now the price is high. There's pressure on Chiarelli to make a good move here so that Boston has something to show for the Joe Thornton deal — Stuart was part of the package with Marco Sturm and Wayne Primeau.

There we go.

Read the same article, couldn't agree more. Chiarelli can't let Stuart go for pennies or else, JT was gone for nothing...

I agree Matt. I think PC has to trade Stuart, even though I would love to see him signed long term.
What is Boston's most glaring need? Goaltending?! Scoring?! Defenseman to replace Stuart?!
I was looking at a few teams that have expressed interest in Stuart. Here are a few ideas....

Col: B. Stuart, M. Sturm, and a conditional pick.
Bos: Theodore and Liles
I think Theodore would come back to haunt Montreal. and Liles would be another defenseman to take Stuart's place.

Edm: B. Stuart, Primeau
Bos: J. Smith, Bergeron, and Winchester

NYI: B. Stuart, Sturm, Suave
Bos: Witt, Hunter, and Dunham

Pitt: B. Stuart, Donovan and a pick
Bos: Malone, Whitney, Welch

Pho: B. Stuart, Axelsson, Sturm
Bos: Morris, Laraque, 4th round

Just a few ideas for Stuart.
