They'd both be fine. We can rationalize as much as we want be overpaid for EJ in an attempt to fill a need. And it would have been fine if EJ were really to develop into an all situations, 40+ point, #1 dman. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like that's in the cards.
The verdict is still very much out there.

We have no idea how Rattie or Siemens are going to turn out. For all we know Rattie could turn out to become a bonifide superstar and Siemens becomes a career AHLer, or vice versa. Definitely can't rationalize the trade right now. Obviously short term it looks better for the Blues, but we didn't make the trade for short term gain.
