Description: The St. Louis Blues have traded defenseman Erik Johnson, forward Jay McClement, and a conditional first-round pick to the Colorado Avalanche for forward Chris Stewart, defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, and a conditional second-round pick. TSN
Insight: The Avalanche are acquiring a former first overall pick, but they seem to be giving up an awful lot in return. Part of the reason for that assessment of this trade is that Johnson has been a bust this season with just 19 points (5g-14a) and a (-8) in 55 games. McClement is a solid role player with virtually no fantasy value.
