All eyes are on St. Louis Blues defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk ahead of the March 1 NHL trade deadline. The Blues are believed to be working hard to move the 28-year-old, who’ll be an unrestricted free agent at season’s end and will command a hefty price. According to a report by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch‘s Jeremy Rutherford, the Blues had a deal in place six weeks ago to send Shattenkirk to a team that was offering a long-term contract: seven years and $42 million. The problem? Shattenkirk reportedly turned the deal down. The team in question is believed to be the Tampa Bay Lightning. As Rutherford reports, it’s unclear what St. Louis would have received in exchange

WASHINGTON — There are mirrors where Jordan Eberle works. And, yes, he looks in them. When Edmonton Oilers coach Todd McLellan called out some of his big guns for leaving their weapons in their holsters against Tampa Bay Tuesday, Eberle knew who his boss was talking about. It wasn’t like Eberle was a contestant on Wheel of Fortune and host Pat Sajak had to to spot the guy three vowels in the six-letter word for the grand prize. Fact is, Eberle has become a lightning rod for fans for what’s wrong in a good season. Also the coach, who wants more and keeps waiting for more from a guy who should be a 25-goal man with his skill-set, but has half that with 21 games to go in this Oilers’ re
