    Here's a tip...

    Shattenkirk is an elite offensive defenseman. One of the best in the NHL.

    That covers a lot of what happens on the other end of the ice.

    Right. Shattenkirk is being paid primarily to produce offensively. Obviously it would be nice if the defense was better, but if the guy can record 60+ points and run the PP, then I think you can say pretty definitely that the positives outweigh the negatives.

    100% agree with this exactly Bobbop.

    I was expecting about a half season in the AHL for him if for nothing else, to give him time to adapt to the way the Rangers play. His skill level is very obvious and I love the fire he plays with. He'll be up in the near future but until then let him play big minutes in all situations down in the AHL.

    If TDA becomes another Shatty, all is forgiven.

    The Shattenkirk signing definitely changed the script for ADA.

    I'm sure if we had not signed Kevin that DeAngelo would be in the NHL, playing on the powerplay.

    I don't think he even has to be as good as Shattenkirk offensively to become a useful player. If he can be a consistent 40-point guy, even as a defensive liability (assuming he doesn't get better in that area), he'll probably have a substantial NHL career. With the way the game is evolving, teams will always be looking for defenders who can skate and score, even if they're not on Shattenkirk's level.

    We need a player like DeAngelo with similar qualities, just not him. Clearly shown when he played maybe 5 shifts in the NHL before he got sent down, he needs time to play before he can come back up again.

    DeAngelo played multiple games. Including multiple on the first pair with Mcdonagh where they dominated the possession stats

    Not according to AV. The AV Squad doesn't have ADA.

    I haven't seen but a handful of AHL games this season but, I was fortunate to make it out to Hartford for a couple of game and DeAngelo looked real selfish, while outplayed by nearly every defensemen except Bereglazov.

    I want him up ASAP but if the reports of him looking like poo as @TGWL stated then there's no point. Love to have him up and getting some PP time but Shatty has been so damn good.

    I've only seen a handful of games and only 2-3 where he actually played. (2 live). It's possible he looked better in the other 4-5 games he played.

    And if we are looking at only stats and a game here or there live, it may be hard to determine where he is at. He may have got sent to Hartford with the directive to work on the defensive side of the puck. We know you can move it and play in the O-Zone. Lets get the other side straightened out. That may be what is keeping his point totals down right now.

    I wish that I will not have to use this in any post, but I just thought it up....

    You aren't the only one who has said he's been anything but above average... didn't mean to single you out... just that there have multiple reports. Sorry if it came off that way

    haha, no worries. I didn't take it that way. Just wanted to point out that I only saw a handful of games, it's very possible he's looked amazing in the other games I didn't see (but I highly doubt it based on what I saw). It's very disappointing because he has flashes where you see he can turn into a special player.

    If the standard is taking Steven Kampfer's spot in the lineup, then my 66 year old father is good enough.
