Shattenkirk never would have become the player he is if he didn't leave Colorado. He plays for a great coach, who has him in an ideal situation behind one of the best defencemen in the game. He would have put up ~40 points here, but he wouldn't have developed the defensive side of his game. He also would probably be paired with Wilson and used as a top pairing here. Trading him wasn't the mistake. Thinking Elliott/Barrie would provide what he does was the mistake.
