He's clearly been indecisive with the puck, which could be attributed to trying to get his game back post-concussion, I don't know. But bottom line, he needs to be force at both ends of the ice to justify this trade. There are a lot of factors that can affect his production of course, but he needs to be an offensive catalyst more than ever since Sacco appears to think we can get by just fine without Tyson Barrie. That leaves EJ, SOB, and Wilson as the only guys on the blueline with any discernible puck skill whatsoever.
No it's not out of line to point out EJ shortcomings, but at the same times it's not fair to completely ignore other players/draft picks (Siemens, Rattie, McClement) that were involved in that trade and to ignore the shortcomings of Stewart and Shattenkirk.
