Kevin Shattenkirk isn’t burying his head in the sand; he realizes that he very well might be traded from the St. Louis Blues.
He seems pretty calm about the whole thing, at least if the video above accurately depicts his feelings.
Shattenkirk admits that, over the last year or so, the trade rumors have gotten to him at times. Even so, he’s adapted to those questions and learned to soak in the positive atmosphere in St. Louis – for however long it lasts.
It’s an interesting look into Shattenkirk’s seemingly quite professional outlook on the whole situation. Could that crumble if an actual trade happens? Perhaps we’ll find out … unless the Blues feel like they’re better off going all-in and keeping him around.
