The Devils announced this morning that Brendan Shanahan is no longer on the team and they will either trade, release or put him on waivers; or he could accept a position within the organization. GM Lou Lamoriello said it was a mutual decision and that he has the utmost respect for Shanahan. It hasn’t been announced yet, but I assume this has something to do with last week’s signing of Rob Niedermayer, which likely knocked the 40-year-old Shanahan out of the team’s top-nine forwards. I liked what Shanny brought to the team, but he is not irreplaceable, and it gives some of the younger players a chance to get quality ice-time. I trust that the Devils management made the right choice here.
