And I hope the Rangers fans are willing to put up with the kinds of defensive mistakes that Shattenkirk made his first couple of years. That's not a knock on Shattenkirk, who I think is awesome. It's just a statement of reality about young D, especially young offensive D. In Shattenkirk's case, he makes up for it with offense. It's why you saw him as a +7 in his short time in STL in 2011 once he was playing in front of decent goaltending and his +20 last year. If we sign him, Schultz may make the team next season, but he's going to make rookie mistakes. Expect it.
