I don't understand this Shanahan 'checker' thing, as well a comment you made last week about Shanny playing on a third line. I'm not sure who he's checking since Jagr's still going against top lines. Also, Shanny's line still gets the second most ice time. I'm not sure why this would qualify as being a 'checking' or a 'third' line. I think Renney's switching it up because he realizes that Ortmeyer really is a grinder who should be with two other grinders (Hossa and Betts), and thus finally realizes that Betts doesn't become a good playmaking centerman just because he's playing with Shanny, and that Hossa, for all the good he seems to do, really isn't a second liner, and thus the best option he currently has is Cullen back with Shanny and Prucha.
