Really? Jody Shelley?

Now I've always felt that NYC overrates its "blue callar" hard working, mediocre players, and this confirms it.

Jody Shelley is not an important piece to any team. He has EXTREMELY limited skill. He's old. Is a fringe 4th line player, and would be a waste of cap space.

I'm sure he's a nice guy, but that doesn't mean he's a good NHL hockey player.

Dane Byers and Dale Weise each scored over 20 goals this year in Hartford. Both have some upside. Both bring size, grit, effort, and skill.

Both would be exponentially better options then Jody Shelley would be at a multi-year contract.
You know who else has scored 20 goals at the AHL level? Hugh Jessiman. http://hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=71394

NEXT!
