    Shattenkirk is extremely offensive, but probably quite weak defensively.

    I wouldn't say Shattenkirk is quite weak defensively. He is certainly not your typical shutdown defenceman, but he is decent in his own end. He will no doubt improve his defensive game going to a great school in Boston University.
    He's not going to score 70 points like Finnerican said. He's got good speed, tremendous vision, great hands and a strong shot. He's also got great leadership abilities.

    I highly, highly doubt that.



    Having said all this, he is probably the dman who has the most offensive potential of that list you provided, and possibly of the whole draft.

    Shattenkirk isn't as bad defensively as you make it seem. He's still decent defensively and it will only improve going to BU. You don't have to bash another prospect to boost up McDonagh. :shakehead

    He wasn't bashing Shattenkirk. On the Habs a -5 is a great +/-. If anything it was a compliment. :teach:

    sorry it wasnt my intention ... I think McDonagh could surprise some people but will not be better offensively then Shattenkirk , Im just trying to say that Shattenkirk will be a force on PP for sure , so a lot of his pts will go on PP . Both are great pick I cant wait to see them in the nhl ! :yo:

    Sorry, I must have misinterpreted it. I really like McDonagh's 2-way game. I think if he was still on the board at the Avs pick we probably would have picked him. I'm still very happy with Shattenkirk though, I particularly like the fact that he's a leader on the ice, and he plays better when the games on the line.

    There was talk from the Habs side that if McDonagh was taken then they likely would have picked Shattenkirk, don't know how true it is since it's hearsay.

    I think McDonagh will top out as a Vladdy Malakhov type of defender- 45-50 points once or twice but consistent 30-point production otherwise.

    Shattenkirk will be a league-leader among goals by defensemen if he develops properly. He has such a cannon of a shot.

    where would you rank Brendan Smith in this group?

    I'm liking this pick more and more. Besides Liles (because I've heard this comparison too many times) who would you compare Shattenkirk with currently in the NHL?

    Thanks.
