5.2 is too much for his old arse. we wouldve been better off using the cash ot keep nylander.
No, I don't think we would have been better of using the cash to keep Nylander. Nylander would have taken every bit of the 5.2, not only for this year, but also for at least the next 2 or 3. Yes, some of Shanny's bonuses could count towards next year, but he has to earn them first, and that's only 1 more year, not 4. And that's assuming we choose to take the hit next year, which we may not end up doing.
Maybe Shanny isn't the Shanny of old, but he's still dangerous and he'll find the net.
Either way, he's a great presence to have in the locker room even if he only scores 15 to 20 goals.
LOL, I love how after one game, 15 goals is now an acceptable level of production. I guess somebody didn't like what they saw. I pray to God that he scores 30+ goals just to minimize the use of the word "intangibles". If he scores 5 goals this season, every other post is going to be laced with "intangibles". BTW, does slowness count as an "intangible"? I keed, I keed
worst forward? I wouldn't go that far at all. There's plenty other that fill that role other then Shanny.
In the Buffalo series last year, I would go that far. He was horrific. I'm not rooting against Shanny, I like him because he is a throw back but I call it like I see it. He was in slow motion in that Buffalo series. I was against re-signing him, but he is on the team and he has my full support now, I just hope he can keep up.
Shanny will be fine. He's a proven Vet. He'll score his goals and he'll make everyone around him a better player. He's the type of guy that not only sparks his own play, but makes eveyrone around him better.
He's got a will to win and you can't keep a guy like that down. He lead us in scoring for a while last season then he trailed and got hurt. He's back this year with more weapons at his disposal and he's healthy. I'm not worried, you shouldn't be either.
if shanahan doesnt score at least 30 goals and have another 30 assists....that money was wasted.....the rangers now have enough veteran leadership with drury, jagr, straka, rozsival that if shanahan wasnt brought back, the rangers would still be lead in the right direction.......he is supposed to be an offensive force who will score lots of goals and help this team....what i have sen of him so far this year is that he is slow.....too slow IMO to play with gomez....he will get tooo tired too fast and i dont think that combo will work
