Not having watched too much of EJ a tthe end of his STL tenure I can't say whether he has taken a major step up or not, but EJ has been absolutely fantastic for us defensively. He's constantly in the right place to clean up for his partners, he's unbelievably good at taking the puck away down low and along the boards, he's been fantastic at breaking up 2 on 1s breaking up the other team's transition game, and he's just a monster who'll run over anybody when he skates the puck out of the zone. He's given up a couple goals in his time here that were sloppy and mistakes on his part, but every player does that, even the greats, and EJ's hockey IQ has been a strength in his time here.
