I would be equally happy with either as long as we dont severly overpay.
Shattenkirk is not at that level yet, and the playoffs showed that. I don't see us meeting Phoenix's asking price anyway, but at the same time, I don't see Staal becoming available, so both options aren't very realistic IMO.

If we do add someone, we will need someone who can pick up some of Colaiacovo's powerplay time, and Staal does not fill that.

I think Giordano really is the ideal fit.
