IMO, EJ is a better overall defenseman.
And, IMO, Stewart was lazy, and I don't think he wanted to be here.
It was a create a hole to fill a hole trade. Avs desperately needed to improve defense and PK and they did. They gave up scoring to do so. I have no problem with the trade back then and I don't have a problem with it now. It sucks that McClement walked, but I don't think it was something Avs could have predicted or prevented.

I think some of the moves after have created bigger problems for us. Avs have gotten slower and less skilled, especially on defense. Skating used to be the teams identity. Avs have failed to address scoring needs. Jones being poor and Hejduk regressing hasn't helped. As limited as Liles was, the team miss him a lot.
