Uh oh, now you've done it! I'm pretty sure you are not allowed to criticize any of the "young" players -- don't you know that they don't score because Jagr's style and authoritarian rule over the team, because of all the useless older players taking up spots from guys that would have scored double the amount if only allowed to? Rangers vets = bad, Rangers young = good, Rangers talent unproven at NHL level = automatic cup winners.
Ok, I digress, but seriously, Shanny an embarrassment to himself and the team? Not only is that inaccurate on many levels, I also don't think you could find a Ranger who would agree with that statement if their lives depended on it. The venom that some seem to have to anyone who is not named Lundquist, Avery, Korpo, or for some reason Antoine Vermette is palpable on this board.
It's just hard to take such an emphatic statement like that seriously. Regardless if you want him back or not, claiming he isn't able to play at an NHL level is dubious at best, claiming he is an embarrassment is simply absurd. So you want him back this year right?
