Shattenkirk has more to give as well.
Too often he gets a bit lazy and depends upon his partner to bail him out. This was less evident with Jackman since he tends to play quite positionally sound and, while noone would ever mistake him for Mike Gartner, he does have enough footspeed to make up for some of the mistakes.

Now, with Redden or Cole playing alongside, that laziness tends to be more noticeable. Redden is too slow and makes puzzling decisions, Cole is inexperienced and is in the wrong position too often.

The advantage is Shattenkirk is young and seems to be willing to dedicate himself to improvement. When/if his defense comes around he should be worthy of that #2 defenseman title we keep laying on him this year.
