Shanahan Retires, TSN Reports

I don't know if this was reported on here (I did not see it, please delete the thread otherwise, sorry )

But Brenden Shanahan has retired officially today,

Quote:
"I am enormously grateful to all of my coaches and teammates I've had the privilege of learning from and playing along side of, throughout my career. While I always dreamed of playing in the NHL, I can't honestly say that I would have ever imagined that I'd be this fortunate and blessed. I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has helped me fulfill this dream."

Thanks for what you did in your time here, it was an honor to watch you don the Rangers Blue. Enjoy retirement!

He had a great career and was one of the best Rangers while he was here. He lead the team with the "A" on his chest, and was great while wearing Ranger blue... have a happy retirement, Shanny.

Way to go Shanny, awesome career.

I think well see him in the league office or in some teams front office soon.

I think part of coming to NY was geared toward his future after retirement...

My favourite player of all-time, so glad he got to spend time as a Ranger. God speed Shanny.

What a career this guy had.

Will never forget that fight against Brashear sticking up for Jagr.

Shanahan has something instilled in him that this team is missing dearly.

Best of luck the rest of the way Shanny! Can't wait to see you behind a bench somewhere!

Remember his career and not his retirement (nor how it happened)

One of the greatest acts ever to play the game.

Congrats on a Hall of Fame career, Shanny. BTW this guy is a class act through and through. I've had the chance to run into him at quite a few hockey events lately and the guy is one of the best. Totally approachable, good humored and willing to spend time with his fans.

First time I saw him he mentioned that I'd followed him since his first season in NJ, through his Hartford years and so on. He chuckled and said something to the effect of well that makes you as old as me. To which I replied "Yeah, but your still in shape to play the game while I'm better suited to sit in the stands and watch others play!"

Anyway, good luck with whatever path you chose Shanny. Once again, one of the best powerforwards the NHL has ever seen!

Shanahan is awesome. It's too bad we got him towards the end of his career (but hey, we wouldn't be the Rangers otherwise). Classy does not do this guy justice. He's one of the best ever

Too bad Shanahan didn't come to NY much earlier in his career.

1995-Mike Keenan and Neil Smith had a deal worked for Shanahan. Alexei Kovalev and Stephane Matteau or Jeff Beukeboom(2 variations of the deal)to the Blues for Shanny. Smith had to gain approval to take on Shanahan's salary and Keenan got cold feet. Traded him to the Whalers for Chris Pronger.

1996-Shanahan wanted out of Hartford. Smith refused to include the Rangers 1996 first round pick(Jeff ****in Brown-a worse selection than Huge Bustiman.Not sure who HFD wanted but the Rangers took Brown after turning down the trade) at the draft in a deal for Shanahan involving Kovalev and Alexander Karpovtsev. Smith had swapped the Rangers 1995 first round pick for Pat Verbeek with the Whale. Shanny went to Detroit for Primeau,Coffey and a #1 pick. Coffey was moved to Philly right after that.

Shanahan always wanted to play and live in NY. His wife is a Boston girl who used to live in NY before marrying Craig Janney.

and here I am thinking he retired a while ago...

In any event, a great career and one of my all-time favorite hockey players - the kind of player I've always liked - played hard, played rough, played hurt and played well. Not enough of those types in the game these days.

Video quality doesn't do justice, but here it is:

One of the best players I've had the privelage of watching in my lifetime. A class act 100% and always seemed to give his all. Very proud of his tenure with the Rangers and won't forget his 600 goal milestone or his awesome fight with Brashear.

i kinda smiled at 3:24 of that video when i realized not one player in that shot is on the team anymore haha

Anyways, I've always been a huge Shanny fan growing up, to the point that i also became a Wings fan just cause of Shanny and Stevey Y. Great career, EASILY a first ballot Hall of Famer. Congrats Shanny! Hope to see ya in our front office soon

Great player, great career, great guy. Good luck and thanks. Can't think of a player more suited to the NHLPA gig. Hope he gets it.
