Espn reports it too.

If Flyers signed Shanahan who will be out? Pyorala, Carcillo, Asham, Powe?

Lines?

Powe or Pyorala would be out since they have 2 way deals.(or both when Betts comes back)

Hartnell-Richards-Asham
JVR-Carter-Briere
Gagne-Giroux-Shanahan
Carcillo-Betts-Lapperiere


I'd rather not both with Shanny though. I like our bottom 6 players

Too slow for ES play, and our PP isn't exactly lacking...which begs the question -- why?




He's not the same Shanahan pictured above.

Never hurts to be interested. With the injuries that can occur, I am not mad with my GM looking at anyone. Its not like we offered him a contract. I expect Homer to be out there investigating every possible deal.

Shanahan is like Forsberg-lite for the Flyers. He's been rumored to come here for years, including right before he was traded to the Red Wings.

He wants a top-9 role though. No one knows if he can do that at this point.

If were a center, I wouldn't mind as much.

I'd rather not. We don't really need him and he's too old and slow to be effective.

No thanks. I think this team has the right pieces, just needs to build them up and get chemistry down.

2 years ago i would of said yes on a low contract.
1 year ago i would of said yes on a minimum contract.
Present day i would say 100% no on any possible contract.

Yuck.

If they are really considering it though, it makes me wonder if there aren't some injury(s) they're not reporting.

i think we need someone different on the third line with Giroux and whoever is his winger then the option we have Pyorola is the only player id be ok with

Aren't we at the 50 contract limit?

Anyways, I'd be pissed if we signed Shanny. Like someone else said, he's a shell of a shell of his former self. Our lower lines are perfect as is, no need to add Shanny to the mix (unless, for some reason, you think he'll do better then Lappy or Asham on RW).

Don't really see the point as he's not a scorer anymore. Not really sure what role he could play for us.

I thought that he was owned by the Devils, didn't he sign a contract with them... therefore would you not need to acquire him on waivers, re-entry on trade?

I thought he was released from the Devils. It was so long ago that I don't remember for sure though.
