Defense is our biggest weakness and we wouldn't get a better defenseman in return for EJ if he was traded. Even if he doesn't become that elite #1 defenseman or a great two-way defenseman, he's still pretty damn good and I think he would be top 3-4 on almost every team in the league. He's also on a great contract.
With all due respect, this is a pretty simple math equation.

With EJ, Barrie, and Jones we'd have three RH D, which includes two prospects. Why not trade the lesser prospect in a package for a proven LHD to round out the top four.

You're still left with the same amount of defenseman.
