Shelley seems like a great character guy, etc. I'd be fine with having him...but not when we 1) overpaid him and 2) have Laperriere. Laperriere does PK, so it's a bit different, but in my mind they basically play the same basic role -- they will fight, go balls out, play with heart, and not look pretty doing it.

Also, this whole thing about Shelley playing above the 4th line is ridiculous. He shouldn't be there, and if Holmgren really has that plan, he's a ****ing moron. If he wants to go 3 scoring lines, do it. Don’t hamstring Richards or Giroux with somebody like Shelley. At least give them a chance.
