Not even going to talk about the rest, but this right here shows how little you know.

Look at Chris Pronger and Zdeno Chara there first few years in the league. If you think EJ has had a poor start to the year, go look at those guys.

Dmen take longer to develop, they ususally don't enter there primes until 27-28. Add the fact that EJ has missed a full year to injuries and I think its safe to say EJ will still develop quite a bit before he enters his prime.

His play since December of last year has been easily #1 Dman level, only thing lacking is point production, and that will come when EJ gets a D partner he can work well with who isn't useless.
