Who do I believe? The fans who say EJ is great or my lying eyes? I don't need to wait for much more info to determine what kind of player EJ is, and will be. He isn't some young D out on the ice trying to figure it out. He is a veteran by any definition. We are now 7 years post draft. If he had been progressing each year you could make a case that his trajectory was still upward. The fact is that his best season was 6 years ago and arguably has decreased since. How many D in the league just get that much better this far into their careers?

Is he the best D on this team? Yes. However, that trade simply hurt this franchise. It has regressed ever since it happened.
