Devils Part Ways With Shanahan, Josh Cries A Little

In the “Stunning News of the Day” catagory: The Devils have cut veteran Brendan Shanahan. Or Shanny opted not to play. Or something happened that has ended in Shanahan no longer playing with the team.

My heart, she is currently breaking.

I’m stunned, and all I can really say is this: Pikkachu better be DAMN GOOD if his presence means we’re losing Shanny.

According to the ever-awesome TG of Fire & Ice, Shanahan’s next move – catching on with another team, retirement, working within the Devils organization – is still unclear.

Now I need someone else to get a throwback-style jersey of. Dammit.

Brookbank Mountain moves west

Late breaking news via TG of Fire & Ice – the Sheldon Brookbank era is officially over.  Bad-Ass Brookbank, no longer here to serve:

The Devils dealt the oft-scratched Brookbank to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for the rights to center David McIntyre, a former Dallas draft pick who’s currently playing at Colgate University.

McIntyre has 13 goals and 30 points in 26 games with Colgate.  Essentially, the move brings the Devils a prospect and frees up a roster space.  Roster space is always nice.

Best of luck in Anaheim, Sheldon.  You will be missed, I guess.  Maybe.
