Brooks covered the Devils in 1996. Mark Everson covered the Rangers both started the rumor that Shanahan was offered for Dube, Brown, Sundstrom, cloutier and a No. 1, which was BS because Rutherford wanted Kovalev or NHL established players. Everson made up the BS prospect list because they were all Rangers first picks from 93-96 (Dube was their first pick after trading their 1st to Hartford for Verbeek - the 1st became JS Giguere)

The truth is that Smith had Savard rated much higher than any forward prospect and would have gladly parted with Brooks' made-up package for a prime Shanahan.
