He's a great veteran enforcer, and solid leader.

Shelley is still on contract for one more year and I don't think Paul will move him.

It is time for him to hang them up and take a position with the organization in which Cote, Betts, and Lappy have done, or leave for some other organization. Great guy, just not a NHLer anymore. What else needs to be said?

Flyers also have a good leadership group also. Not saying he won't be missed but they can find other players to take his role in the locker room

Well we already have enough leaders and hartnell is a GREAT lockeroom guy for all his humor. Jagr is a dry funny guy (assuming he returns).

Sestito is probably a better enforcer at this point in their careers, at half the price.

If Shelley was making 500-750k I don't think he would get the same heat he does.

I'm certainly not complaining if he's back, provided it doesn't prevent us from making moves we want to make.
