The Kevin Shattenkirk Rumors Just Won't Go Away

What would it cost to bring Shattenkirk to his hometown team? After the dust settled from the J.T. Miller, Kevin Hayes, and Chris Kreider contracts and the Derick Brassard trade the Rangers were left with a considerable amount of cap space.  Some have speculated that the cap space that Jeff Gorton has created in the will go towards a trade involving the Rangers' defense. The Rangers goaltending situation is rock solid and the forward depth, for the moment, looks good on paper. Adding Mika Zibanejad brings another promising, big forward to the mix and Michael Grabner and Nathan Gerbe add...

Cult of Hockey: Does Kevin Shattenkirk to the Oilers now make more sense?

The notion that Kevin Shattenkirk would end up on the Edmonton Oilers never made much sense, but have things changed? Is there a possibility that Shattenkirk’s value has dropped enough that he might now make sense for the Oilers, either as a one-year rental or as a long-term answer on the blueline?

Now what? Red Wings Defenseman trade options

The Red Wings have too many forwards and too few defensemen, how do they rectify that? As Red Wings fans continue to digest yesterday's free agent acquisitions, two things are clear. 1. The team needs a top-pairing defenseman 2. The team has too many forwards and not enough defensemen.

Here is a look at potential targets. Potential targets not covered here: St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk is available, but the price...

Could trade rumblings from the Colorado Avalanche indicate a Boston Bruins raid for Tyson Barrie?

The Bruins are expected to be players in the chase for STL's Kevin Shattenkirk as their number one defensive target-but could another wantaway Western conference defenseman be their backup plan? Yesterday we saw all manner of trade craziness in the NHL and the rumor mill is only firing up even more as FA approaches.

It is,...

Is Kevin Shattenkirk's High Price Tag Scaring Away Potential Suitors?

The trade everyone expected at the draft failed to materialize. Let's start with the basic facts that we know originate from non-garbage sources. Detroit was told that it would take Dylan Larkin to complete any deal for Shattenkirk, and Edmonton came calling with Jordan Eberle or RNH and was refused, and told to return with Taylor Hall. This made Blues fans collectively gasp angrily while tearing their hair out, and the Facebook geniuses at Blue Note Lounge claimed this was all a part of Armstrong's plan to acquire Stamkos and Malkin in a megadeal. Armstrong refused to move Shattenkirk for...

Four Teams the Red Wings Could Look to for Defensive Help

Outside of the bigger names floating around there are some other teams with depth along the blue line that the Wings could look to as a trade partner for a defenseman. It is no secret that the Red Wings are looking to upgrade their blue line.  It is also no secret that with the defensemen free agent pool looks like someone forgot to add chlorine to it for a while that upgrade is going to have to come in the form of a trade.  The two big names reportedly available are St. Louis' Kevin Shattenkirk and Winnipeg's Jacob Trouba.  Either one would certainly upgrade the Red Wings defense but at...
