Shanny is old. The last two seasons he has had a good start and run out of gas around January. Zherdev will give us better offensive production because he is younger and will have the energy. Shanahan would be great as a 4th liner at this stage playing 12 mins a game with pk duty and some powerplay. That's the only way to keep him fresh. He was a total non-factor in the second half last year and only was able to be effective in the 2007 playoffs because he had a chance to rest when he was out with the concussion. Shanny is a first ballot hall of famer but he just can't do what he used to be able to anymore. In his prime I pick him over Zherdev any day. The way it stands now, I take Zherdev.
