    Jeff Shattler has signed a 2 year deal with the Saskatchewan Rush after an 11 year career with the Necks. This is a huge loss for the Necks and a big bonus for the Rush. Loved watching him play and can do it all on the floor. Certainly over the past couple of years was frustrated watching him as the lack of touches reduced his production, not his fault but lots to do with the righties not sharing the ball which is a theme all year long. Not surprised he made the move and think he will have a big year with the Rush. Roughneck fans will miss his presence.

    Was great to see Shatts play last night with 2 goals and 6 assists for team leading 8 points in the Rush win over Rock. Back to his old form now that he is on a team where he sees the ball.

    have to wonder if this was the lefty Toronto needed rather than Jones.

    Have been watching him since Jr A, and, he is one of my faves. Played the part of Rock killer again last night

    Possibly. I like Shattler and would've liked to have seen the Rock pick him up, but I think that Jones has been the Rock's best player through the first two games this year, so I can't necessarily say that the Rock should've picked up Shattler in place of Jones.

    Now, if you were saying the Rock should've picked up Shattler AND Jones AND sent Steph Leblanc packing, then I'd agree :cool:

    Leblanc isn't seeing the ball enough that I can blame him for the woes.

    I'm sticking it on the guys that have shooting percentages well below 0.100

    Anyone remember what Calgary traded Buffalo for Shattler? Can not seem to find it anywhere.

    Calgary got a 2nd round pick in the trade too.

    That's insult to injury!

    The second round pick seems to have turned into Jamie Lincoln.

    Nothing too memorable, but, he did stick around for a few years in the expanded league of that era.

    2nd worse trade in NLL history after Brian Nickola for JT?
