LOL. What's next? Shattenkirk chews grape gum between periods, which clearly shows he can't play defense? Shattenkirk wears different colored socks during games, which clearly shows XYZ players are better? I love all of this over-analysis (if I can call it that). Not terribly pertinent, but very entertaining nonetheless.

In the end, there are these things called hockey games going on. And we have a player playing well on a successful team in those games.
