leafs_rock_go_mccabe Posted October 30, 2008 Report Share Posted October 30, 2008 Source (TSN) One of the last prominent free agents in the NHL is available for hire, as the New York Post reports that veteran winger Brendan Shanahan has informed his agent to explore playing options other than the New York Rangers. "I've told (agent) Rick (Curran) that I can no longer wait and that it's time to move on," Shanahan, told The Post. "Until now, Rick has been under instructions to tell inquiring teams that my focus was on re-signing with the Rangers, and that I was not accepting any other offers. That has changed." Shanahan, 39, previously said he would only play with the Rangers this year, but the team never came close to signing him because of salary cap issues. Shanahan scored 23 goals and 45 points last season, and has 650 goals and 1,340 points in 1,490 career NHL games. So, there's probably not much to this, but does anyone think Montreal would be a potential destination? I can't say I am interested in acquiring Shanahan, but he might be useful if the club starts to flounder. I don't know. What does everyone else think?
