Also hard to judge the trade until the Avs become a contending team. Shatty is playing on one of the deepest, most well coached teams in the league. It is pretty much impossible to look bad in that system. When the Avs get a coach who knows how to effectively use his players, and implements a system, then we will have even more of an understanding of EJ's game.

The trade doesn't look great for the Avs right now. But it could look very different in 3 years from now. When all the players involved are in the NHL and the big 3 are entering there primes.
Yes, this.
