Lamoriello: It’s Shanahan’s Decision…

The Devils want Brendan Shanahan, but does he want them? GM Lou Lamoriello admitted today that his team is interested in the 40-year-old winger, but will let him make the final decision which they expect to come by the end of next week.

Personally I liked what Shanny brought to NJ last season and think he would continue to be an asset in the room and some of the younger players could learn from his tenacity, and his willingness to put the team first.

I’m aware he has lost a step, but mentally he makes up for it by positioning himself in the right spots, and he could help the Devs’ PP which always seems to shoot itself in the foot.

Maybe he’ll even go old school and wear his old no. 11 now that John Madden signed with Chicago.
