You're also talking about games in which Shattenkirk was split up from his partner and had to make due with Redden, who is a regular scratch.
Don't let a small sample when the Blues were at their worst mislead you.
Also, as a Blues fan, I'll clearly state I don't think Shattenkirk has been the Blues' best defenseman this year. Pietrangelo is absolutely better, it's just that Shattenkirk has exceeded relative expectations and Pietro has been up and down.
He shouldn't been ******** on my players and say shattenkirk is better than MDZ, and shattenkirk is 1+ years older.
Elliott has been bailing out a lot of the miscues, Elliott is not as good this year so the warts have been exposed on that D.
