Shanahan Signs With Jersey

14 01 2009


It was a long time coming, but somebody finally picked up the 39 year old right winger. Rumors throughout the season had him going to various teams. I heard about possibly signing with Philadelphia, Detroit, and Pittsburgh but it looks like he settled with the team that drafted him 2nd overall in the 1987 draft (1st Overall was Pierre Turgeon). The New Jersey Devils signed him to a 1 year contract worth $800,000 dollars. Over 22 seasons in the NHL he has played in 1,490 Games, scoring 650 Goals, and amassing 1,340 Points. The Devils add a proven winner and goal scorer who also has won 3 three Stanley Cups.

Its hard not to like this move on the Devils part. Low expectations and very little pressure on him, It will be interesting to see how much he has left.

Good to see Shanny finally land somewhere close to home. He will add some scoring punch to a team that already has most of the pieces in place to be a contender come playoff time.
