TheMessiah Posted July 9, 2006 Share Posted July 9, 2006 http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=170921&hubname=nhl The New York Post reports that forward Brendan Shanahan has agreed to a one-year contract with the New York Rangers. The Post adds that the 37-year-old veteran took the deal - worth about $4 million for next season - after turning down more lucrative offers from both the Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens. Shanahan reportedly informed Canadiens GM Bob Gainey Saturday he was rejecting his team's bid to sign him. Shanahan had 40 goals and 81 points last season and earned $2.28 million US. The 18-year NHLer played for nine seasons in Detroit, helping lead the team capture three Stanley Cups. In 1,350 career games with the Red Wings, Hartford Whalers, St. Louis Blues and New Jersey Devils, he has 598 goals and 1,232 points. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
