Hate to bring this back up, but this was in the Inquirer today.
Shanahan tired of waiting, says bye to Broadway
Brendan Shanahan got tired of waiting for the New York Rangers to want him.
Settled in New York after two seasons of playing with the Rangers, the 39-year-old likely Hall of Famer didn't have any interest in talking to any other team in the NHL. He even told his agent, Rick Curran, not to field offers from any club not residing in the heart of Manhattan.
Shanahan worked out at the Rangers' practice facility in anticipation for the call that it was time to rejoin his teammates. But due to salary cap restraints, and possibly in part, the emergence of young forward Nikolai Zherdev, there was no longer any room on the Rangers , even for a guy with 650 NHL goals.
"I've told Rick that I can no longer wait and that it's time to move," Shanahan told the New York Post this week.
I thought this was old news.
