Brendan Shanahan to Return to the St. Louis Blues?

A KCorrespondent IAugust 18, 2008

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the St. Louis Blues have notified Brendan Shanahan's agent, Rick Curran, of their interest in signing the veteran forward.

Blues President, John Davidson told the Post-Dispatch:

“We’ve thrown our hat in the ring, [and] when it comes down to it, Brendan has to make a decision that’s right for him and his family. It could be New York. But we hope he explores the Blues as a viable option.”

It is unlikely that Shanahan will sign with St. Louis—but anything is possible as long as the New York Rangers continue to hold out on re-signing him.

Hey, maybe after the terribly-painful Sundin saga is over, the Leafs may decide to ink Shanahan to a contract, thinking that they need a leader in the dressing room amongst all the youngsters.

Now that would be a story!
