League tracks: G,A, PPG, PPA, SHG, SHA, GWG, H, S, BLK, and gives a negative .5 point for each PIM.
Is Shattenkirk an upgrade here?
Since you mention point values for PIM, is this a points league where all the categories have a specific value, a weighted roto league, a H2H points league, etc? This could be significant in making a decision as assumptions are being made on the value of multiple category players. For example, if hits and blocks aren't weighted as highly as more offensive categories, then it may not be as important to roster stronger multiple category contributors.
How many do you keep? You should probably list your entire roster by position and number of starters. Also, you mention you have to drop one of those D - is that a rule?
Furthermore, you say you can acquire him for 'nearly nothing.' Is this just via a pickup or trade?
And just to note, as it was mentioned in a response, that Campbell is only 32 so I wouldn't use age as a reason to part with him just yet, as he should have plenty of productive seasons ahead, depending on how you value him. But of course the question above about your categories and whether they are weighted could have an effect on your decision.
The more details you provide, the better advice you will receive. Perhaps create a signature with all your league and roster details? Top bar > USER CP > Edit Signature (on left).
