In an interview with Puck Daddy Brendan Shanahan stated that if he had to choose a jersey to go in to the Hockey Hall of Fame with it would be the Winged Wheel. Not surprising but made me happy to read it. He also shares his thoughts on Lost and the improvements in the game. Just a short interview with a great guy.

Maybe my all-time favorite Wing.

I love following Shanny on Twitter.

Last night he was answering some questions and said that at the Winter Olympics, Patrick Roy told he and Steve Yzerman that 'The Brawl' messed up Roy's shoulder. He said that both he and Stevie acted upset by the fact, but that they were both thinking, "high glove side".

Shanny was great on Twitter last night. One shocking reveal is that he was actually friends with Claude Lemieux due to their time in Jersey together, so much so that Lemieux apparently named his son Brendan. Another one was that during the whole D-Mac/Lemieux beatdown, D-Mac actually had no idea that a full-scale brawl was going on behind him. :lol:

Raise your hand if you hate Brendan Shanahan.

"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

Not much better than hearing the Irish Jig after Shanny scored a goal or got in a fight. :)

If he ever succeeds in getting the NHL to make changes to its playoff overtime format, rest assured I'll hate his guts.

What other jersey would he even consider? Three Stanley Cups with Detroit makes it an easy decision.

That's exactly what I was thinking!

I was talking to Shanny via twitter the other night.. told him about the fact that I always happen to have a collection of "shanny's fanny" pictures from all the preskates. I said I now have a shanny's fanny album on my pc. He's like I'm so glad my name isn't Jacques.

At any rate - adore him and will always think of him as a wing and that's how he should go into the HHOF.

I love Shanny and he will go down as one of my all time favorite Wings, but the fact that he was not home grown and did not spend at least one full decade here, makes me disagree... I think the retired Wings numbers belong to a VERY exclusive group and the honor should only go to essentially "lifers"

Nick should be the only other Wing of the modern era with such an honor...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Here


Holland is a damn good GM. period.

i was just at one of the playoff games (cant remember which one it was cuz i went to all them) and they announced that shanny was there and everyone got up and gave him a standing ovation. i was right in front of him like 10 rows down and you could see a tear trying to sneak out of his eye he was so happy. needless to say hes a pimp daddy.

Chris Osgood owns more Red Wings goaltending records than Terry Sawchuk, and has backstopped the team to two Cups. His #30 belongs up there.
