That's the thing that makes it frustrating, Stewart and Shattenkirk have been the driving forces for the Blues this year rather than passengers to Pietrangelo, Backes and co.

EJ has to play much much better. The flashes are there regularly, he'll have dominant shifts, periods, even games from time to time and if he could do that with regularity that would be fine but its definitely been a large enough sample size to see that he struggles with confidence and decision making and that's preventing him from playing like that every night. Maybe it's something that will improve with better coaching and better teammates, to help him take that next step but at 25 you can't help but think it's gotta come soon if it's coming at all.
