Shanahan is a very skilled player that could have been an amazing addition to the Habs LAST season. I find this season is all about the younger faster players that interest BG more than the older more experienced skilled players (thats why we got rid of kovy, koivu, etc.)
Im not saying that Brendan wouldnt have played well with us this season, Im just saying that this season BG is looking for players that are still young and are still at their prime if you know what I mean.
It's too late for Shanny, his best days are gone. He should have signed here when he had the chance instead of the Rangers. Imagine him playing for us in the playoffs in 08, we prolly would have beat the Flyers as he was the type of player we were missing.
I don't want Shanny. He made is bed. He had his chance.
He is dead to me. Just in case the Habs pull it off and win their 25th cup, I don't want Shanny's name anywhere near the Habs on that cup.
He chose NY, let him live with it now.
I was listening to Leafs Talk AM640 and Bill Watters mentioned that The Shanahan has narrowed it down to two teams. The second guy (don't know his name) asked who he thinks it is. Watters mentioned how he's really close with Curran (agent for Shanahan and Plecanec, he then went on to say he thinks it's between The Rangers, Devils, Boston, and then slipped in the Habs, it was weird the way he said it, acting like he new something.....
Thanks but NO THANKS!
Let's hope it's not the Habs.
Nobody wanted thge Guy last season - until the Devils somehow (apparently) felt desperate for some unknown reason.
Gainey offered Shanahan the summer of 2007 - Habs apparently weren't good enough for Shanahan then - why all of a sudden, would he think the Habs are now wotrthy of his services (is it because so few teams are truely interested)?
I would rather the Habs have signed Koivu or Kovalev - any day!
we already have enough players as it is, the last thing we need is another forward, who's slow to boot. Who's gonna sit if we sign him, lats, dago, stewart, skost, ,metro, another year in the ahl for chips? We do not need him....for ****s sake, we're really turning into the rangers here, trying to sign everyone hitting the ufa market. Keep some space for the youngsters.
P.S. Watters is not exactly top drawer when it comes to hockey info.
Actually it's just the both of you....
It says Shanahan has narrowed it down to two teams....and Watters believes it's the two teams are possibly one of the 4 listed
Also Watters is a former player agent, I'm sure he's friends with a lot of the agents out their, that makes him a good source plus he had a major role with the Leafs for a while, he obviously knows people.
