Michael Del Zotto for Kevin Shattenkirk

Rangers lack a right handed dman who can qb the powerplay. The Blues need a left handed number 2 dman. Thoughts?

The Blues need to add to Petro and Shatty, not make a lateral move or one of regression.

Shattenkirk has been our best defenseman this season, there is no chance he is getting moved.

The only reason I could see Blues doing it would be for budget reasons. Shattenkirk and Pietrangelo needs new contracts this summer while del Zotto is signed for another year at an affordable salary.

Other than that I think Blues like Shattenkirk more than del Zotto.

That's a huge step back for STL. If NYR is going to do this, they're adding.

Makes no sense for the Blues. Like Celtic Note said, we are looked to add a LHD to Petro and Shatty not trade one of them. Our left side is pretty weak as is right now.

Lateral move at best for the Blues. Downgrade is much more likely.

Shattenkirk has two seasons of 43 points and is on pace for a 38 points in 48 games season (pro-rates to 65 points).

Del Zotto is getting better in his own zone, but isn't at Shattenkirk's level yet. Shattenkirk has been a plus player since coming to the Blues.

Del Zotto IS two years younger than Shattenkirk.

But as others have said, the point is to add a third high-quality defenseman to the roster, not swap one out for another.

The Rangers would have to add another piece or 2 if they want to get Shattenkirk.

And the Blues aren't looking to make a quality for quantity move. Blues are only going to add futures to a winger to receive a center or defenseman. Blues aren't going to move Shattenkirk or Petro for anything short of overpayment.
