Yeah I would like to see Korps get a shot and see how he does, but Shanahan we know can still get goals and has a good influence on the young guys. He also has a positive influence in the locker room.
But the team isn't lacking in good locker room guys. They need players who can play the system, and Shanahan is too slow to be able to do that. The overabundance of bottom-6 forwards might already prevent some deserving prospects from getting a chance, and Shanahan doesn't help.

I feel like signing Shanny is one of those dumb moves, signing a vet for no clear purpose, where a younger, cheaper, more able player could fill in the same role.
