Kevin Shattenkirk's new deal should resemble Slava Voynov's

Kevin Shattenkirk is one of several high-profile free agents the Blues will have to address over the summer. While it's extremely difficult to predict how much money some of the other pending free agents will receive, Shattenkirk's value might have just been measured by a contract handed out on the West Coast.  Slava Voynov of the Los Angeles Kings just received a...
