Kevin Shattenkirk explains other reason he signed with Rangers

If it was clear that Kevin Shattenkirk wanted to come play for the Rangers, maybe it wasn’t clear just how confident he was about their chance to win a Stanley Cup. The 28-year-old defenseman from New Rochelle signed his four-year, $26.6 million contract as a free agent on July 1, carrying an annual salary-cap hit...

The question came often, from family and friends, and every time Kevin Shattenkirk answered when he was going to come play for the Rangers, he had a “twinkle in his eye” and a “grin on his face,” according to his mother, Barbara. The odds were so against it ever happening, he only would answer, “Maybe...

The Argument Against Trading Henrique

The Argument Against Trading Henrique

The Devils are clearly bereft of much talent and depth at defense. To alleviate this concern, many fans have discussed trading forwards, specifically Henrique. Today, I discuss just a few reasons why I think he should not be dealt. Since free agent frenzy has come and gone and the New Jersey Devils were unable to land a top-flite center (essentially Kevin Shattenkirk), the talk has been that the Devils will probably need to trade a forward if they want to bolster their shallow blue line for the upcoming season. Mike touched on this himself yesterday. Specifically, they would probably...

Shattenkirk is a Rangers test that Vigneault keeps bungling

Regarding the Rangers, who have summer work in front of them with shrinking cap space in which to do it: 1. Kevin Shattenkirk did leave more than $23 million on the table in order to fulfill a lifelong dream, but Double Deuce’s $6.65 million annual cap charge hardly represents a discount in ranking as the...

Three reasons to love Shattenkirk’s contract

Three reasons to love Shattenkirk’s contract

Kevin Shattenkirk is a New York Ranger and because of that the Rangers defense is already miles better than it was during the 2017 Playoffs. We’ll save concerns about Shattenkirk’s defensive play for another day and instead focus on what it took to bring him to Broadway. But rest assured that the 28-year-old had a big price tag for a reason. In the past three seasons only six NHL defensemen have averaged more points per game than the Rangers newest star. Kevin Shattenkirk is tremendous offensively, drives play besides, and is literally off-the-charts in powerplay scoring....

Shattenkirk Creates Rangers Ripple Effect

On the opening day of free agency, the New York Rangers made an enormous splash, signing Kevin Shattenkirk to a four-year, $6.65 million AAV deal. Shattenkirk was driven to play for the Blueshirts and even approached the Rangers with this deal, which they did not turn down. This all but completes the defensive overhaul that was […]

Recapping Tampa Bay Lightning’s moves in free agency

Have the Lightning won or lost the free agency game? It’s kind of hard to tell. Upon the conclusion of the NHL Entry Draft, the hockey world shifts its view to the next big moment of the off-season—free agent frenzy. At noon on July 1st each year, teams try to outbid one another for the biggest fish who hit the market. In doing so, more often than not teams overpay and are stuck with the consequences when the player whom they sought is no longer at the top of their game. The biggest fish to hit this year’s open market were defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk and Karl Alzner, who landed...

Kevin Shattenkirk: The Perfect Player At The Perfect Price

Kevin Shattenkirk: The Perfect Player At The Perfect Price

Isn’t it amazing when a plan comes together? Back in 2016, Adam write an article about how Kevin Shattenkirk, a lifelong New York Rangers fan, was quietly suggesting he wouldn’t be against being moved to his hometown Rangers. The Blues, back then, were gunning for true contention, and were close enough that even though they were quietly exploring the trade market for Shattenkirk, they ended up not pulling the trigger at the time. A full year later, the Blues did pull the trigger on a Shattenkirk trade, and moved him to Washington at this year’s trade deadline. The Rangers, of...
