Young, Controllable and Talented

Ultimately I think this is what Joe and the Stars are aiming to do - make a team capable of pushing for a division title for an extended period of time and be legitimate contenders (ex. Hawks, Bruins, Pens, etc.).

I don't really put any stock in to these ideas but at the same time they can provoke some thought and dialogue.

The article outlines the talk where Gaglardi cites the need for another top-6 forward. The writer presents the idea, purely on speculation, where the Stars would look to acquire Chris Stewart from the Blues; a struggling 24 year old RFA power-forward with hands. Going the other way? Suggests Michael Ryder or Souray and obviously other pieces. But I think he fits the mold of a player that would interest the Stars: young, controllable, and talented.

What would you guys trade for Stewart? What other players who meet the criteria of: young, controllable, and talented (assume top 6 forward or top pairing d-man if you wish to go that route) would you like to acquire? I don't have a very good grasp of the value our prospects hold and would be interested to see what some of you conjure up. Thanks.
