And another one bites the dust.
The news broke tonight that Kevin Shattenkirk would be coming to the Eastern Conference as part of the Washington Capitals.
The price...seemed pretty reasonable, actually.
Shattenkirk trade has other details but main parts I believe: 1st RD pick in 2017, 2nd RD pick in 2018 and Zach Ranford going to St. Louis— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) February 28, 2017
Couple of corrections:
- Zach Sanford is going to St. Louis. Randford does not exist.
- The second is conditional...and appears to not exist unless Washington is putting another trade together for said second.
- UPDATE: A goalie prospect in Phoenix Copley.
And...that’s about it.
One of the better offensive players in the entire NHL on defense and no slouch in his own right ended up in Washington for a number of picks and a player who ended up with 14 points in the AHL.
If this is what name talent in the NHL is going for, even as a rental, it’s becoming clear that Don might need to start making phone calls.
