Jones and Parent will come back soon enough. Vaananen may play in the end of this week.
Yet, we need another d-men? For what?
Carle (did not score for us yet but logs big minutes)
Vaananen (plays liek solid top 4 d-men)
Sbisa (no idea what will happen to him)
Alberts (who knows, maybe waived maybe traded)
Kukkonen (waived but playing)
Plus Jones and Parent in about one or one in a half month.
Yes, I can see it now. We need another trade for a d-men.
As for Shanahan in Philly...The Flyers latest winning ways combined with other teams getting involved looks to have muddied the waters considerably. I would say, based on my talks with various sources, there is far better chance that Shanny signs elsewhere than he signs in Philly.
here are reports out that the Flyers are over around 1 million and Shanahan wants 1.5 and this is why this deal is being held up.
While money is always an issue, this would be a VERY surprising twist, as every single person I have talked to either in or close to either camp has said from the beginning that is would not be about the money.
I have calls out and I will report back, but I highly doubt this has anything to do with the money. I have been hearing from the get go anywhere from 800k to 1.25 M and since Shanahan really preferred to stay close to NY, he wasn't making the money any issue.
I dont get it. Why wouldnt he sign for half a mill less? I mean, hes obviously loaded from playing so many years, and yeah, money is always sweet, but is it greed at this point? Not signing because your getting .5 mill less than you want seems kind of stupid.
