from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo,
Well, here is Shanahan a year later, saying the same thing he said when commissioner Gary Bettman tapped him to lead the league’s new department of player safety: For all the crap that comes with the job, he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a difference.
And despite all the criticism Shanahan has received, his group is making one.
“All the things I heard about the challenges of the job were true,” he said. “But we knew that going in, and we don’t spend any hours of the day feeling sorry for ourselves. We feel that we’ve got a very important initiative, and we work really hard to sort of try and maintain that. And it’s early in the process still. But I see a lot more positive from players than maybe other people notice.”
