Awesome. And so jealous.

Don’t worry, this isn’t going to become a “Tracking Shanny” blog. I just think it’s pretty cool he scored a goal in his first game in eight months:
That was the first goal in a 3-1 win for the Devils over Nashville. I hope he can finish out his career with a nice half-year.
Shanny’s making his 2008-2009 debut with the Devils against Nashville tonight. That’d be great to see, were it on outside the two teams’ viewing areas.
Shanny’s going back where it all started: New Jersey. That’s one less veteran on the market for teams desperately in need of one, such as Pittsburgh.
The Rangers fit Shanny in under the cap with a one-year contract worth $2.5 million in base salary, with another $2 million added in if he plays more than 10 games and $800,000 in playoff bonuses, according to TSN. There was never any chance of Brendan returning to Detroit, but it didn’t stop some people from speculating that he’d come back to fill in that “top six forward via free agency” slot. It would have been nice, that’s for sure, but the idea was pure fantasy.
