Smid-Shattenkirk
Scuderi-J.Schultz
Hainsey-Petry
Potter/Klefbom
Not only is STL going to keep Shattenkirk, the value you proposed was bad.

Shattenkirk is basically a top-pairing defenseman playing 2nd pairing due to Pietrangelo's presence. He's better than MDZ, who's been brought up on this board already, and is going to cost more than Nick Schultz and 7th overall to acquire.

Young puck-moving defensemen that put up 40+ pts, play the PP, and can play top pairing type of role don't come for cheap.

If they move Shatty it's probably in a package for one of the big-4 F's, or J.Schultz+
