Shanny’s slump amusing…for now

January 13, 2006

Slam columnist Jim Kernaghan spoke with Brendan Shanahan recently regarding his current 8-game goal drought.

But nowadays, the Detroit Red Wings power forward sees scoring slumps for what they are — blips on the career screen, annoying little flatlines that invariably end.

“Two weeks ago, I’m on a scoring streak of 10 or 12 games and all of a sudden, the puck is bouncing the other way,” the veteran and former London Knight said.

“My linemates are scoring and I’m not. It’s almost comical.”

Shanahan, on a line with Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg in last night’s 6-3 win over East-leading Philadelphia, racked up 4 assists.

    Maybe Shanny could call another summit meeting. Brainstorm a little on how to get it going.

    Maybe the co-Greatest American-born Hockey Player Of All Time could fly in with some ideas. He’d just need to find some free time in his schedule–like, say, during the Olympic break.

    Shanny should make sure the summit meeting happens anywhere near a goalie crease, and the first person he invites to attend should be Robert Lang.
