okay i had an epiphony well searching the web and well on capgeek.com. Brendan Shanahan made 800,000.00 last year with a smaller cap hit because he signed half way through. reasons to sign shanny.
1. He is affordable
2. He is secondary scoring, can't get too much of that
3. Solid defensively( can penalty kill)
4. great in room and knows most of the guys already, no chem problem
5. fan fav put ass' in the stands
6. Knows how to win(thats what detroit does)
But most of all he deserves to end it all where it all happened for Shan the man
