Stuart to Detroit?

February 23, 2008

Not pulling an Eklund here, but there are rumblings from Detroit are that the Red Wings are ready to make a deal for Brad Stuart. Red Wing fans speculate that a deal is imminent because of the fact the Kings picked up Ellis off Waivers.

Here is what one poster said on LetsgoWings

And hearing that Wings scouts went to a Blues/Kings game right after hearing rumors about Stuart coming to Detroit, it just seems too likely to me. Holland said himself that his priority is getting a defenseman at the deadline. Fits like pieces of a puzzle to me.

I’m pretty sure Ellis is part of a package going to LA, think about it. Why would Detroit waive him? LA doesn’t want to pay his entire salary so Detroit waives him knowing that LA gets first crack at picking him up… Holland and Lombardi had worked this out earlier, I’m almost positive. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Seems to make sense if in fact there were scouts at the Kings/Blues game. I suspect we get a draft pick and a prospect for Stuart, assuming we cannot resign Stuart.
