Blah blah blah. Spin it any way you want but Quincey would be our 2nd best Dman right now.

As for Sherman...lets re-visit the Johnson trade when Shattenkirk is a point per game D-man (as he is now), Stewart is playing good physical hockey and Rattie is a 35 goal scorer. All for a decent defenseman who has 1 point in 11 games.

As for Varly, he has been less than stellar and is far from a Vezina candidate as you proclaim.

Craig Anderson 6-2-2, .950 SV% with a 1.49 GAA. He is the best goalie in the league. I like Varly but the fact of the matter is that we would be a better team if we just kept Anderson and our picks.

Anderson, Forsberg and a 2013 2nd is better than Varly

and Shattenkirk, Stewart and Rattie is better than EJ and Siemens

A legit top 4 Dman is better than a 3rd line instigator in Downie.

Giving Liles away for nothing. Giving Anderson away for nothing. Brilliant.

Any way you spin it or whatever you are trying to tell yourself to make the pain easier to handle, Sherman's moves have not made this team better. If anything, they have set us back.
