Shattenkirk is a Duck

Recommended Posts

I started the same topic. Didn't see your post.

Ducks wanted him last year, goes to TB and wins the Cup, now comes here.

3.9 at only 3 years is a decent deal for him. Definitely a solid upgrade over Gudbranson, who was making 4m.

Dom Luszczyszyn (not a typo!) likes the value in this deal for the Ducks.  From The Athletic ($$):

Quote

He wasn’t the problem in New York and he proved it last year in Tampa Bay with a strong bounce-back season. Shattenkirk is still a capable play-driver at 5-on-5 and can help Anaheim’s power play too. At $3.9 million per he’s a steal, especially on a short three-year term.

Shame on me, but to be honest, I never followed this guy, Shattenkirk. Is he really good, or just another overestimated warm body? Why is it so much hype about him?

He's a legitimate power play QB and puck mover.  He's not incredibly fast, and he's not going to be the guy you want killing penalties, but he's a smart puck-mover who drives offense.  Pretty much everyone likes this deal for the Ducks.

Is this the highest profile UFA we've landed since Saku Koivu? Obviously Niedermayer and Fedorov came before but I'm seriously drawing a blank on any names that could even be in the same area code as Koivu in the time since.

Because he is an RHD, decent defensively and has the ability to be a functional offesnsive driver and PP QB which Murray has been yearning for. I'm not sure that there's too much hype on him and that it is more that he fills a need. So, he should make the Ducks marginally better in that sense. To me, the biggest impact of his signing will be what other roster moves Murray makes as a result and how he handles the expansion draft.

Maybe, although he was well past his prime when we signed him.  Although I had flashbacks and got scared for a minute - offensive defenseman, known for power play QBing, not the fastest or best in the D-zone, in his 30's...oh no.  We just signed Sheldon Souray again!

But Shattenkirk is 5 years younger than Souray was.

A Fowler-ShattenKirk Pairing on the Ducks Powerplay could work wonders on our team imho. Signing is big boost for our Ducks and all of us alike.

Remarkably similar contracts though, no?

Also, I was making the reference in relation to Koivu. I believe Koivu and Souray were around the same age when signed. Both guys pretty high profile UFAs. Both pretty far past their prime.

add Drysdale to the mix in Ducks Defencemen Depth and you have Strong Blueline.
