Yeah he may not have the same jump in his step as he used to, but as a 3rd line/PP type guy there isnt many better guys out there. You have the room to sign him, I dont know why you wouldnt.
I think the problem is since his concussion, Shanny hasn't been much of a physical player, and now he's gotten much slower. He can't handle top-6 minutes anymore, and the team has a glut of bottom-6 guys (with several possible rookies looking for a chance in too), so he'll only make that problem worse. Plus the team already has Drury as a locker room presence. Shanny doesn't really fill a need anymore on this team, so it's best to let him go.

Now maybe if the team excels near the deadline and he's still available, maybe...
