Belfour Could Sign Soon- Shanahan Not So Soon

from the Detroit News,
The Red Wings got the results of free-agent goalie Ed Belfour's physical Thursday. And they liked what they saw. General manager Ken Holland said the tests showed Belfour's rehabilitation from back surgery in April has been successful. While Belfour could be signed in the next couple of days, forward Brendan Shanahan, who had 40 goals last season, is no closer to deciding his future with the Wings. Shanahan's agent, Rick Curran, said six teams are showing interest in his client.

Holland spoke to Rick Curran, the agent for forward Brendan Shanahan, again on Thursday. Holland also left a couple of messages on Shanahan's cell phone, telling him the team wants him back. "(Curran) tells me Brendan says we're a strong option,'' Holland said. "He just wants to see what's out there.''
