Three Cheers for Shanahan

November 23, 2009 by Big Tony 

 Three Cheers for Shanahan
I will keep this short and sweet. The announcement came down this past week that Brendan Shanahan has officially retired from the NHL after 21 very successful years. Shanahan has won multiple Stanley Cup Championships, an Olympic Gold Medal, a World Championship, and Canada Cup title (now known as the World Cup of Hockey). No matter where he played—from his five NHL stops or for team Canada—Shanahan provided a presence that was unmatched by just about anyone in his time because no matter how the game was going every time Shanahan touched the puck in the offensive zone he could score. Brendan Shanahan conducted himself on and off the ice in a way that is very admirable and a way all young players should aspire to. He was a class act and the NHL was better for having him all those years and perhaps he will continue to contribute to both the NHL and game of hockey in his retirement.

    I second and third those cheers. Shanny has always been a class player with grit and skill. His kind is always missed when they retire
