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+
Generally speaking I agree with you - it depends what ownership wants to do with their team.

They do have cap space problems.
