The Blues are changing their system this season and mobile blueliners like Kevin Shattenkirk, Colton Parayko and Alex Pietrangelo could be the beneficiaries.
St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock is going to let his blueliners jump up into the play more than they have in the past. This aggresive system in the netural zone could result in more even-strength points for the likes of Shattenkirk, Parayko and Pietrangelo. Just something to keep in mind on draft day.

Kevin Shattenkirk understands that the trade rumors probably won't go away, but he is prepared to play for the Blues in 2016-17.

"This is something that I think is going to go on all year, it's always a story that people are going to run with," Shattenkirk said. "But for me, I can only control what I do on the ice and if I’m giving 100 percent out there, whatever happens, happens. I can control it to a certain point, but if something is going to go down, it's going to go down." He thought he was going to get moved at the NHL Draft this past June, but that didn't happen. Shattenkirk knows this could be his last season with the Blues, as he can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer.

The price to acquire Kevin Shattenkirk is very high, according to Bruins GM Don Sweeney.

"The acquisition cost was extremely high, and rightfully so because they are difficult players to have and develop, and when you have them, you might as well maximize the asset in return," Sweeney said Friday night after the first round of the draft. The Oilers have been unwilling to meet the asking price as well. Blues GM Doug Armstrong won't give Shattenkirk away, so it wouldn't be surprising if the offensive defender is with St. Louis at the start of 2016-17.

Kevin Shattenkirk is reportedly attracting plenty of interest in the trade market.

Boston and Edmonton have expressed interest in the Blues offensive defender, according to sources. The same source said that Philadelphia is expected to be looking at Shattenkirk as well. He is eligible for unrestricted free agency after the 2015-16 season and St. Louis is comfortable with entering the year with him on the roster if a trade doesn't materialize.

Blues GM Doug Armstrong expects Kevin Shattenkirk to be with the team come September.

However, that doesn't mean that Shattenkirk definitely won't be traded. "It's a business decision, and Shatty's going to have to make one and we're going to have to make one," said Armstrong. "But he's a helluva a hockey player and he's a big part of our team." Shattenkirk has one year remaining on his contract and then he can become an unrestricted free agent.

Kevin Shattenkirk knows the trade rumors probably won't go away, but he hopes to stay with the St. Louis Blues.

"It was a wild year with all the rumors going on, and it might plant the seed of doubt in your head," Shattenkirk said. "But that's not my decision. I'm happy to be coming back here next year. I have a year left and this is where I want to be next year. That's out of my hands unfortunately." Shattenkirk's four-year contract that comes with a salary-cap hit of $4.25 million will be completed after the 2016-17 season.

Kevin Shattenkirk and the Blues are finding out quickly that the Sharks are a tough team to play against.

"They're a frustrating team to play against," Shattenkirk said. "They check you hard, they're very disciplined and their structure can frustrate you. I think that's what we do well, too, so we have to make sure that we get on the other side of that." The Sharks have outplayed the Blues in the first two games of the Western Conference Final, but the series is tied 1-1. Shattenkirk had an assist in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final and he has 11 points in 14 playoff matches.

Colton Parayko and Patrik Berglund picked up the assists on St. Louis' only goal. Unfortunately for the Blues they had a breakdown in coverage in front of the net just a few minutes later and gave up the eventual game-winning goal to Radek Faksa. The Blues trail the best-of-seven series 1-0.

Shattenkirk's goal in Game 2 proved to be meaningless, as he scored with just a handful of seconds remaining in the game. It's still impressive to see him produce at a point-per-game pace over his last nine postseason outings. He should continue to lead the charge from the back end for St. Louis.

Kevin Shattenkirk just continues to pick up the points.

The talented defender scored his 14 goal and 41st point of the season, marking him just four points shy of matching his career high in points in a season. It'll be interesting to see if he can at least match it.
