Shanahan-Koivu-Tanguay
Latendresse-Higgins-Sergei
Kostopoulos-(Lapierre/Chips/Bégin)-Laraque

Not a bad line up IMO.
That's the thing; from where we stand on the Sundin front, Shanahan is a drop off. However, in the real world which GM's operate, they have to explore every situation that fills a need. At this point in time, Shanahan does bring big body + leadership/veteran presence.

I agree it's not too bad when keeping a cool head, but I'm a star junkie, so I need my Sundin in a Habs jersey... Seriously, the Shanny thing could be a good move, one that represents a possible upgrade. I would hope that he's got something in the tank left, avoiding a Randy Mckay type fiasco - sorry Cheez.
