I think that being an ultra slick passer is the highlight of Shattenkirk's game, but I am not downplaying the rest of his skills at all. His passing is right up there with the best we have had on the point. I don't think that we have had a stronger offensive tandem, since Pronger and MacInnis. Shattenkirk is like a Steve Duchesne that can play defense too. I have been thoroughly impressed by him. We fleeced the Avs big time. I wouldn't trade Shattenkirk for EJ. Shatty and Petro are cornerstones that we can't let depart. You can fill in reliable guys (Jackman's, Polak's, etc.) around them and have one heck of a defense. Just my opinion.
