Sundin vs Shanahan watch


Recommended Posts

Mats Sundin - 8 GP 2G 1A 3P -5 12PIM $5,626,500

Brendan Shanahan - 5GP 3G 1A 4P +2 10PIM $800,000

I said about a week ago that I hoped that Shanahan had something left in the tank, but I doubted it. He's proven my doubts wrong thus far!!!

that shanny goal tonight was a beauty. really a goal scorers goal.

and i may be wrong, but has he been getting more ice time? or is that due to the PP?

I think the PP. Devils had a bunch of them tonight, after being shafted the last seven games or so.

dude vancouver is playing poor and devils are really hot. will see at the end of the season. Sundin will pick up his game no doubt.

Well, there certainly has been a discussion of causality.

Pre-Shanahan Devils: 4-3

Post-Shanahan Devils: 5-0

Pre-Sundin Canucks: 7-5-3

Post-Sundin Canucks: 1-5-2

I think one could argue that Shanahan has been a positive addition to an already good team.

Sundin on the other hand has thrown whatever chemistry the Canucks had into complete disorder.

Great post bro. Big of you to admit it. I was excited as hell when we signed him, but I too had doubts. He keeps this up, he'll be playing for us again next year, nevermind this season.

I don't really give a crap about Sundin right now.

But as Sutter himself noted a few days ago (in a funny as hell dig), it's not as if Shanahan was going around the country promoting poker. He did keep himself in shape, the other guy didn't so Shanny was definitely going to be more ready to contribute.

It was suprising to see Shanahan playing on the top line with Zubrus and Gionta for a while and in that 3rd period. Elias was on the 3rd line with Rolston and Madden for a while, then Sutter moved Elias back to the top line. Clarkson played mostly on the 4th line for the second straight game. Shanahan has plenty left in the tank and he is so fit and healthy right now that it looks like he has not missed a step or beat so far. I'll take 3-goals in 4-games and one assist. Keep it up Shanny.

Shanahan > Sundin

I think Shanahan has proved so many people wrong, including myself. I mean I expected him to play well but damn he is playing great.

Also he is lucky he got on a great team right now, and Sundin didn't, you know theres 2 hot teams right now.

The Devils and some team called The Visitors, they play in Vancouver

He has been so much better than I thought he was going to be. I really hope he can keep it up for another 50+ games.

To be fair, Shanahan doesn't have to do as much as Sundin in Vancouver in order to make the team win.

I wasn't sure whether he had anything left and I definitely wasn't sure whether bringing someone on board why had been openly waiting for an offer from the team accross the river was a good idea. Also, since you don't play in NJ as just a PP specialist, the idea that some people in the media had that he wouldn't be taking a regular shift and would stay 'fresh' that way seemed ridiculous. However, so far, it has been fine. He does have to take a regular shift, but, as you point out, he didn't sign as a top six forward - only one of the significant PP pieces.

Bro... between the money, the length of years on the contract, and his production thus far, I am thrilled. Depending on how well he continues to play, (and how deep we go into the playoffs) this could be the best acquisition since #89. GO SHANNY! :clap:
