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?
yes because you have:

Stefan Elliot and Tyson barrie who are just like shattenkirk but younger

Varly who is WAY better than elliot. Elliot rides the bench in STL.

Liles was good but overrated.

Forsber and Rattie haven't played in the nhl. Neither has Siemens. Stewart hasn't been the same since breaking his hand in a fight vs a guy from Minny

Eric Johnson has played in the olympics as a 20 YEAR OLD. He's 24 and has been very good for the Avs with little to no help. It's not like he plays with Suter or Weber or even someone like Scuderi.
