The Flyers were looking for a legit enforcer and Shelley had 7 years of being one of the top H/Ws in the league and was a F/A. I mean really, the guy has been in the league long enough and the Flyers have these guys called scouts that may have seen him play a game or two before last season. Besides, Clarke suggested that Homer go after Shelley because he was a good enforcer and good in the locker room.
It's actually a fairly accurate representation of how Shelley got on Holmgren's RADAR, as relayed by the beat writers and PGL staff at the opening of free agency.
