Looking At Shanahan

from the New York Times,
“He’s a winner,” Jagr said. “That’s what we were kind of missing last year. We didn’t have many guys on the team who won the Stanley Cup, who have been in the finals. You have to go through it, to learn how to play the tough games.” Jagr predicts that Shanahan’s influence will be felt over the long haul, but many of the younger Rangers are already paying attention. “He’s very calm,” Lundqvist said. “I like seeing him. There is a lot of respect. With a guy like that, you know all he has accomplished. So you watch him.” On the ice at practice, Shanahan has spent his time diligently trying to learn Jagr’s idiosyncrasies. He finds his new role challenging, but he is trying to embrace all that it brings.
