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...

Report: Blues requested Red Wings Dylan Larkin in trade for Kevin Shattenkirk

Reports had surfaced on Sunday out of the Free Press that when the Red Wings inquired on defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, the St. Louis Blues’ asking price was forward Dylan Larkin: St. Louis has to decide what to do with defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, but on first chatter the Blues wanted Larkin, which is a no-go. At 27, Shattenkirk has played 410 games, with 242 points, 119 of them during power plays. He’s got one year left at a cap hit of $4.25 million and would require a big contract to keep.Helene St. James continues... We know the Red Wings need defense more than anything right now,...

2016 NHL Entry Draft: Blues' Draft Review

Six kids who were brought up and learned to play hockey in St. Louis were drafted yesterday -- including five in the first round. The Blues, however, didn't get a single one of them... and they didn't trade Kevin Shattenkirk, either. ... Kinda funny... the Coyotes' first pick in the draft was a kid from St. Louis, and the Blues' first pick was a kid from Phoenix... not to mention that the first overall pick was also a kid from Phoenix. How's that for a statement about how hockey is growing by leaps and bonds in this...

Cult of Hockey: Edmonton Oilers reportedly in talks for Kevin Shattenkirk

For any team in need of a right-shot defenceman, the St. Louis Blues are an obvious target. The Blues have a trio of quality blueliners on the right side, and star offensive defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk is only one year away from unrestricted free agency. Thus, it isn’t at all surprising to see reports that the […]

Will Kevin Shattenkirk Be Traded Tonight?

The Blues' cap situation has made holding on to one of their top defensemen difficult. Oh, let the speculation begin. Kevin Shattenkirk has been on the trade block in fans' minds since this season's pending UFAs have been apparent. Doug Armstrong has the Blues shoved up to the cap, and he's dished out some large contracts with NTCs (see: Bouwmeester, Jay, at an annual cap hit of $5.4 million and three years left on his deal) that make it difficult to pay Shattenkirk what the market probably thinks that he's worth. Keith Yandle's seven year, $44.45 million dollar deal has probably priced the...

Red Wings Trade Rumors: Well actually, Cam Fowler isn’t that good

BUFFALO, NY — Oh baby, the rumor mill is going. Not really, though. It’s been pretty quiet on the Red Wings trade front as we inch closer to the 2016 NHL Draft. As a matter of fact, it seems to be pretty quite around the league as a whole. We’ve managed to at least create some speculation with some defensemen that are reportedly available - Names such as Kevin Shattenkirk, Jacob Trouba, and Cam Fowler. Helene St. James of the Free Press wrote an article about Fowler, and what might be worth giving up to acquire the 24-year-old defenseman out of Windsor, Ontario: As always, the issue...
