When I first learned that Colorado had traded Chris Stewart and Kirk Shattenkirk to St Louis for Erik Johnson and Jay McClement, I scratched my head. Erik Johnson is a very valuable commodity, as D men with his size and skill are hard to find at his young age. But having watched the Blues play the Canucks and watching highlights from the Blues dismantling of Edmonton, this Chris Stewart is something special, and so is Shattenkirk. Peter Stastny might not have been too far off the mark calling it a terrible trade for Colorado, even if his rant put his son in an awkward situation. C-Stew will be a great player in this league for years to come. Erik Johnson is destined to be a lesser version of Jay Bowmeester.
Colorado, you made a bad trade. That's the bottom line.
