Brendan Shanahan has made it clear he wants to play next season, and wants to play for the Rangers. Credit “Larry Brooks for tracking Shanny down”:http://www.nypost.com/seven/06212007/sports/rangers/true_blueshirt_rangers_larry_brooks.htm.
That Shanahan wants to be back isn’t surprising since that’s basically what he said once the season ended. But he said he first wanted to see how his body felt in the days and weeks following the Rangers’ elimination.
“Fortunately, my body is telling me that my instincts were correct. I’m fine. There are no after-effects from the concussion or from coming back from it to play at the end of the year,” Shanahan told Brooks. “I’m really looking forward to coming back and trying to win the Stanley Cup in New York.”
I have a feeling this is going to be a busy draft weekend for Glen Sather. He might not even have time for golf.
