Wow... People are still harping on the EJ trade. It is over! Sherman may have overpaid a bit, but what Sherman does is target the pieces needed to build a cup winner and does
it takes to get them. He 'overpaid' for Varly and EJ to get pieces that have potential to be cornerstone pieces for a cup run. This team with a couple prospects instead of Varly, and Shattenkirk and Stewart instead of EJ would be farther away from a cup than they are now. It really isn't hard to understand what Sherman's plan is. You may disagree with it, but the reasoning behind it is very simple. If you follow that path of reasoning you would do that trade 10 times out of 10.
Shattenkirk is not a cornerstone piece to a cup team nor does he have that potential, he is a complimentary piece. EJ isn't a cornerstone piece and may never be one, but he has that potential.
