I guess if they have the room then it doesn’t matter, but this feels like an overpay. Shattenkirk has some pretty good offense but his defense is downright awful and he had several bad turnovers that resulted in crucial goals against in ECF and SCF games. $3.9m seems like a lot for a guy who really needs to be sheltered (Anaheim probably can’t do that as well as Tampa) and plays a one-way game that generates ~0.5 points per game. Plenty of guys get 40 points per season and are in this salary range despite being more solid defensively.
IneffectiveMath’s charts looked like he was exactly average offensively, slightly below average defensively, but shines on the PP. I would think a PP specialist would be worth less, but I guess Anaheim isn’t using the space anyway and he’ll help them if played correctly, it’s good. It’s also possible that being a Tampa fan skews my understanding of overpays since for us at this point it’s an overpay if anyone is making more than $1m.
