Hey, just wanted to check in quick to say that I have nothing new to report. I wouldn’t expect much tomorrow either because it’s a Sunday during the offseason, but I could be wrong.
Looks like the fans in Montreal have talked about the possibility of Shanahan signing there but nothing substantial has happened. (These days, rumors on message boards get a lot of play; I bet that’s true here.)
Just remember: agents need more than one team in a bidding to create leverage. Shanahan has clearly stated his desire to return to the Rangers, and that likely cost his side to lose leverage. It wouldn’t be unusual for his camp to talk with another team or two…although I don’t have any information either way.
I’ll let you know if anything happens the rest of the night.
