I really wanted the Rangers to sign Shanahan in the off-season. I continued to support a Shanahan signing in the early season. I thought the Rangers were going to sign Shanahan after they waived Rissmiller (see here). They didn’t. I did not understand why the Rangers would not sign Shanahan when their power play continued to struggle, and when they OBVIOUSLY needed a power winger. I still don’t. After Sundin spurned the Rangers for the Canucks, I thought for sure Shanahan was the logical choice for the Rangers.
But alas, Shanny is a New Jersey Devil. He debuted tonight, and guess what… he scored a power play goal. Yes, I am bitter. Yes, this will haunt the Rangers.
