Adam Rotter: Shattenkirk was normally a second pair defenseman with St. Louis because Alex Pietrangelo, one of the best defenders in the NHL, was on the right side of the first pair. If Alain Vigneault can do what he wants and consistently roll three defense pairs than Shattenkirk shouldn't end up much higher than his career average. Two interesting things with Shattenkirk will be how much more time he gets at even strength than he usually does and whether his presence and role on the PP allows the Rangers to cut a bit of Ryan McDonagh's minutes to keep him fresh for other situations.
