I think it would take a while for him to pass Staalsy as this years whipping boy


Whoever wants to surpass Staal as the whipping boy on the team would likely have to kill someone in cold blood to make that happen, although I imagine some here would blame Staal for that too.

I think that if Talbot produces with Sid then Shanny won't be brought in...

No real logic behind it. But I think that if the team had to keep searching for line mates for Sid, then someone from outside the organeyezation would have to be brought in.

Hardly doubt Talbot is the answer.. But dont think Shanrahan is either......You know who would be good,...Dean Youngblood... maybe we can get him?

Even if he was signed, which I highly doubt, chances are slim that he would be a candidate for top lines.

After a Stanley Cup run, should Sid be that person.

Plus remember that Gonchar is a vet. And Fedotenko has won a Cup. We definitely aren't lacking the experience. Just because Shannahan is more well known than Fedotenko doesn't mean he has any more of an edge over him in the "war stories" department.

Plus with all the players we have, we don't have room for a story teller. Mario can tell stories.


Sid is still a 21 year old. No knock on age, but there is something different between a general leading troops and a very gifted soldier. I don't think Sid is that guy...yet.

Yes, Gonchar is a vet, but he's not a vocal locker room leader either. I have family in the DC area that know him from when he was a Capital and his personality doesn't seem like the type to be vocal on things day in and day out.

Fedotenko doesn't scream leadership to me. He had one good playoff.

It has nothing to do with Shanahan being more well known, he's been around a LONG time and has always been a vocal guy for his teammates.

As far as Mario telling stories, he himself has said he doesn't go into the locker room to talk to the guys.

If the team doesn't have a veteran for people to look up to or be a "story teller," see how good the chemistry department is come March.

I don't exactly follow this...if Shanahan is too old for the NEW YORK RANGERS, of all teams, why would the Penguins want him? A team that historically shoves money at any played out veteran to cross their path doesn't want him, so a team that has had a dismal lack of success with guys past their prime signs him? Somehow I doubt it. Guy doesn't have the wheels to play here anymore, the Penguins have three pretty quick lines and I don't see him wanting to play on the 4th line. No thanks.

If this team is not motivated come playoff time after last year, there are far more problems than can be solved by having a guy who won't do a thing in the playoffs besides tell guys how great it was to win a Cup.

According to the Flyers board:

It's already been reported that shanny was meeting with holmgren.

According to the most recent posts, he's willing to play for less than a million, and they'll have an answer by the weekend.

Also, two different posters said that his choices are between Pens or Flyers. One said he received an email from an un-named writer (he denies it's ek), the other said he heard the same on 610.

Take it for what it's worth. . . (and where it came from)

Parrish wound up taking a 1 year two way $500,000 offer from Dallas.

The veterans want to win.

If the Pens could bring in Shanny for $1MM or less, then I would do it...

That's the problem. Godard, like it or not, is sticking in the lineup. He fills a role that is deemed necessary, at least during the regular season. So that means someone like Dupuis or Kennedy or Cooke gets scratched for a PP specialist. On a team with the seventh best PP in the league that is struggling to generate on ES. Doesn't make much sense. This team doesn't need Shanahan and it doesn't have room for him.

They (the fans) are talking about getting rid of any combination of Lupul/Hartnell/Knuble/ Briere and/or sending Nodl and Downie to the Phantoms.

Again, FWIW.
