Sharks acquire UFA D Brad Stuart's rights from Detroit for Andrew Murray, conditional pick

First tweeted by the Mercury News's David Pollak, the news that the Sharks were expected to announce this afternoon was revealed to be the acquisition of Brad Stuart's rights. In return, the Sharks send Andrew Murray and a conditional 2014 7th round pick to Detroit (the condition being, of course, signing Brad Stuart). Brad Stuart, the Sharks' 3rd overall draft pick in the 1998 draft, was traded away from the Sharks on November 30, 2005 along with Marco Sturm and Wayne Primeau in the famous Joe Thornton trade. He scored 6 goals and 15 assists last season, as well as led the Red Wings in hits. Stuart's family has remained in San Jose since the trade, and he was reportedly looking to sign with a team in California once he became a free agent. This means that it is almost certain that Brad Stuart will sign with the Sharks, which now raises questions about the fates of the other San Jose defensemen.
