Nothing more than a move to get a big hockey name to fill the position to ease fan backlash.

My only concern is him poaching staff from the Wings.

I hope not=( We already have to deal with stupid dallas now.

At least Dallas pretty much already hired anyone they'll get from us. But man oh man he better not lure Holland and Babs away. Last thing I need is yet another reason to hate that team.

Wow, that was fast.

I'm having such cognitive dissonance about this that I can't even comment intelligently about it.

I just posted in the Leafs thread this afternoon wondering about whether all the whispers about this move being a possibility were legit or just speculation.

I...guess I got my answer.

Out of the frying pan and into the fire for Shanny. He traded the second most scrutinized job in hockey for the first most scrutinized job in hockey. Geesh, we get it already, you're not afraid of the pressure!

More than one Leafs fan on hfb is hoping Shanny leads them to Blashill for next Leafs coach.

They were not there at the same time.

So who dishes out the suspensions during the playoffs now? Shouldn't be him could be seen as a conflict of interest.

Hi I'm Brendan Shanahan of the Toronto Maple Leafs. In the spring of every year, an incident occurs where the Maple Leafs blow their playoff spot with a magnificent collapse.

As the video shows in slow motion, the leafs continue to hand out lengthy contracts to players who to will certainly become a disappointment, and who will disappear when needed most.

Taking into account that the Leafs have a previous history, I have suspended the Leafs from the National Hockey League for 10 seasons.

Great... Now another one of my boy-hood idols is running a team in direct competition with the Wings (within the same division). Happy for Shanny and all, but for me this blows.

IF he had maybe ended his career in Detroit & actually worked in the front office, there might be cause for concern. I think the chances of him actually poaching anyone from the Wings is pretty slim.
