Do you really think Brian Elliott would be doing what he's doing in St. Louis behind this defense? He faces 13-15 shots a game in St. Louis.

And it's hilarious you think Liles is a better defenseman than EJ.
Elliot had 972 shots against in 38 games last year. or 25 per game. Varlamov had 1564 in 53 games last year or 29 per game. Not a huge difference.

Johnson is good yes but he is not the top pairing D-man we thought he would be. Not even close.

Chris Stewart, Kevin Shattenkirk, JM Liles, Filip Forsberg and Ty Rattie

FOR

Eric Johnson, Semyon Varlamov, Duncan Siemens and a 2nd round pick

Would you do that deal today?
