we had to get worse before we got better. were some of the moves questionable at the time and in hindsight proven to be bad value? yes, but i don't value Shattenkirk over EJ.
we needed to get bigger, more physical and better as a team. we did that in swapping Kevin for EJ.
we have similar types of D men in Barrie and Elliot. more point forward, potential power play oriented defense men.
if Siemens reaches his potential then he and EJ would be a sick top 2 pairing on D. then you'd still have Elliot and Barrie to play in the top 4-6 and solidify the D.
without making a move for EJ i don't think all the other moves come into play and allow us to get better. because we'd be holding out hope that someone stepped up or rebounded into what we were hoping for.
