Yeah potential #1 defenseman, we all agree with that. Do you also remember all the talk about how Blues failed picking Pietrangelo because he was progressing how they hoped? And out of nowhere one season he just exploded.

Also I am pretty sure Blues could use EJ on their roster more than Stewart right now. Their coach is the reason why they're bubbling right now.

Also saying he didn't develop is pretty over exaggeration, he lost one full season due to a freak ACL injury and when he came back was already lower on the depth chart and was struggling, but he didn't struggle his WHOLE career in St. Louis. Like I said he was traded due to the factors of Pietrangelo emerging and filling out weaknesses.
