Shanahan For Team Canada

Yesterday I got on my soap box and mentioned Shanny should be considered for the Olympics, now Danny Knobler of Mlive is picking up where I left off... from Mlive,
"Of course, any Canadian would go (to the Olympics) if asked,'' said Shanahan, who had just 25 goals in 82 games the last time the NHL had a season, in 2003-04. "I wouldn't say I'm banking on it. I think I'd be surprised. My wife would be surprised. She thinks we're going somewhere warm in February.'' Good line, but Shanahan was just warming up. "The next Olympics in Whistler (British Columbia, in 2010) are my focus,'' he deadpanned. "I was thinking bobsled, like (teammate Chris Chelios). He bankrolled the Greece team. I would bankroll a team for Ireland. Buy my way in.'' Or play his way in, as the case may be.
