wow... I can't believe theres not a single thread dedicated to the 3-time champ... this man was the heart and soul of this franchise for 8 years.. come on. who knows if we'd ever beat the Avs if Shanny never arrived. we might all hate him today but that doesn't change history....

I'm with you... the whole team changed when Shanny arrived. He gave us everything we needed in a true blue Power forward. What an awesome player he was!

One of my favorite players ever.  Since he left, the Wings haven't been able to find anyone remotely like him.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

@NHL: I think about you guys a lot and Ill never forget what we were able to accomplish. Shanahan on time w/ Detroit http://t.co/MocFUrYpJD

We think about you too, Shanny! Mostly when you'ref****** things up now, but sometimes for good stuff too! :lol:

So glad he agreed to participate in the AG

Edit: this was one of the first comments under that tweet:

@tbegley: @NHL - Disgusting and a perfect example of why he's not objective in his role with the league. He should resign or be fired!

Hey @tbegley: trolololololololol!!!

Yeah the Shanny trade for us changed everything. Much respect towards Shanny arguably the key piece in 97. Was a beast of a player for us imo right behind Stevie and Feds

 

Congrats to him making the HOF

 

Well deserved respectively.

If memory serves he dropped the gloves for a teammate in his very first game on the Wings.  I remember thinking "this guy is awesome!"

Why the hell would any of us hate him today? I love, and always will love Brendan Shanahan. He was a true hall of fame player and an honor for me to watch when I was just a young kid.

I still can't believe the politics of the game couldn't be set aside last year. He should have been first-ballot for sure. 600+ goals and 2,000+ PIM, 3 Stanley Cups, Shanahan Summit, etc.

I remember Shanny in Hartford, and how he wasn't overly thrilled about playing on a team with an indifferent owner/fan base...That was spring of 1996.

 

Then later that fall - rumours swirled about Shanny being moved; I recall thinking that he would be a perfect fit for the Red Wings.

 

No matter what he does as 'head disciplinarian' - he'll always have a big fan in F.Michael.

I got love for Shanny, he was a part of some legendary teams the Wings put together. It's hard not to love any of those players.

Was monstrous for us in his prime, and was scoring 40 goals for us even when he was "washed up." A very special player.

 

We need a Coffey trade 2.0 in the worst way. This team needs teeth.
