What does Rangers PP have to do with the Flyers PP? Where is the comparison? I just do not see it. Say what you want about his speed, age etc etc THis player still has that shot and it was a little off last season below 10% junior.
Last year: Knuble with 15 PP goals and Shanny with 11, Hartnell with 10, Briere with 14
Paul Holmgren isn’t happy with the defensive play of his forwards. So much so that the Flyers’ general manager met Monday afternoon with free agent left wing Brendan Shanahan.
“Brendan wants to play, so we sat down and chatted about the possibilities,” Holmgren told CSNPhilly.com. “We would have to jump through some hoops to get a deal done because of the cap, but we could do something.”
The Flyers are top-heavy with forwards, and they are about $700,000 under the NHL’s $56.7 million salary cap. They would have to lose salary. Other sources say the 39-year-old Shanahan might be willing to play for less than $1 million given so many clubs are strapped by the salary cap right now.

Nothing. He's not a defensive player nor he doesn't bring veteran leadership.
Two things the Flyers could use.
I wouldn't mind seeing Shanahan in a Philly uniform. As for Knuble, if he could be part of a package to get defensive help I'd be all for that. Replacing Knuble with Shanahan would be a wash. Plus Shanny's leadership would be helpful.
