Painfully clear? In the sense that he plays with the worst partner imaginable for a first pairing, and still manages okay? Under the worst coach in the NHL in the most painfully obvious way?

I'm sure you wanted to trade Duchene last season too because he couldn't put up 100 points playing 13 minutes a night with McLeod and whoever else he was burdened with.
The biggest fingerprint Greg Sherman has made with the Avalanche is the blockbuster trade for Erik Johnson. Considering how bad the team is and how a new GM would want to leave his own mark, it's plausible that they make a conscious effort to turn the page.

Implying Erik Johnson is too good or too important to be traded is conjecture.
