Even if Shanny goes elsewhere after this season, he could probably sell and make a profit. Smart thing would be to hold to it for a few more years. Manhattan apartments just don't lose value, especially, $13 million dollar pads.

I don't know, Fletch. He just might. Shanny's ice time needs to be reduced. Mayhaps the answer for next year would be the $3m salary, play on the 3rd line at ES and recieve plenty of PP time. However, if he goes out and has another 25+ season, why would he think that he should not play on the 2nd line?

Shanny buying a 13.5 million dollar home at age 57 on a hockey players salary should scream HEY YOUNG ATHLETES, HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU INVEST YOUR MONEY WISELY.


Lord knows the 2-3 million hes been taking home after taxes and agent fees in his most lucrative of years couldnt pay for his lifestyle to this point AND this new pad unless he'd done some very smart things with his dough.

Or how you can act like you love your team, city, and situation and then go on to screw them for a base salary that was good alone and then an easy 2 million or so in softball bonuses pushing us against the wall cap wise. Yea, way to go Shanny.

Not to mention the guy didn't start to play hard until he reached his 10 games to kick in the bonus money.

He's really been annoying the hell out of me lately. And the people that are on his **** 24/7.

It was funny during the lockout, Swedish media reported how much money the stars had to pay in lux-tax, and what the IRS had valued their collected assets too, Markus Näslund had a insane amount, more then twice as much as Forsberg. Like 200M USD vs 80-90.

Didn't see this coming.

I don't think there's a Ranger fan on these boards that dislikes Shanny, he's nothing but respectable, he's playing just about on par with last years totals (although he missed 15 games last year), his contract came out to be..well, his contract, he's not screwing anyone, there's a lot of other players that their contracts are ridiculous for us, but that's Sather's choice, he could of let Shanny go, but he didn't, and for that, we are all, at least most of us, are happy that he's here.

jeez....you are an angry elf

ok but seriously, he turned down offers from many other teams and told the rangers to do what they needed to do and then take care of him at the end so that they would have enough room for him......sather gave him the money and he of course said what most would say "ok" lol.....

You might be right in avg on that lower number, but íf you can, you should keep it as low as possible. Ottawa got like their entire roster intact from last season, and with Alfie taking a paycut, they might not be forced to move anyone this summer either...

There's nothing wrong with an athlete getting his money, but when that athlete is looked upon as near God status and Shanny the Investor handing out great tips..for no reason, we've gotten soft.

NY fans can get too emotionally wrapped up in their players...leading to impaired judgment. IE. Shanny will help us out next year and take a pay cut.

He's worth alot, just for the intangibles that he brings to the ice. He's the one who's always talking to the refs, and with a quiet coach like Renney, he brings more to the locker room than most think. Does all this, and his high pay justify bringing him back? Look at his numbers, and ask who replaces him if he dosen't come back?

Good Question shoot.

If he keeps it up, I say bring him back. The kids get so much benefit from him being there.

drury and gomez know a little bit about the nhl as well

pay him 4 million to practice with the team or have Gomez replace his leadership...I'll pass on each.

He's probably planning ahead for a job with the league when his playing days are through.

the salary he took is at most market value. if you have given up $3M recently, then you are 100% justified in your criticism.

otherwise, I think a shutting up is in order.

I said I don't have a problem with him getting his money. This is his job, why not try and get the most you can.

And I agree, his salary is justified for a guy who put up near a point per game.

I guess his start to the season is what's bothering me. I can't get that out of my head.

As long as he is scoring more points as most of the team i think the rangers will sign him another year. He should take a pay cut but im sure he is well aware of that. He is AMAZING on the PK as well. Although he is old, i dont believe you can find an adequate replacement for the price we will probably offer next year(if their is an offer).
