I think it should be remembered that Shanny came a few days into a season where our last playoff series was the one where Draper's face got rearranged.
That last statement was a general statement regarding Shanny, hence the "gets touted". That's plural.

Mac played with Stevie and Lapointe split time with Fedorov and Larionov. They were every bit as much scoring line players as say Cleary/Samuelsson are now. 2nd/3rd line tweeners.

Shanny didn't change the physical intimidation factor of the team considering there were tougher and more intimidating players already on the roster. Yeah, Primeau was a giant baby so swapping the two was awesome, but the addition by subtraction was every bit as important as adding Shanny. Don't forget that Scotty still added Joey Kocur late in the year.
