The only thing I'll eternally wonder about if this does indeed turn out to be true is what happened to all the $$$ figures we've heard quoted over the past few days? What happened to Shanny's desire to stay in Detroit? If the Rangers get him for $4M/1yr, well, isn't that the same thing that Detroit offered and didn't all of us other suitors put bigger 2 year deals on the table? Nice demonstration of how accurate the rumour mill is, I guess.

That said, it's probably not a bad thing for us if we don't get him. We certainly would have had to cut a salary (Zednik?) to put him under our cap, and if he did need a 2-year deal from us, it would have put us in a lot of trouble for next year's cap follies. So it's not all bad.
