Brendan Shanahan told me he will NOT be coming to Cgy to join #Flames org. He advised Murray Edwards he will stay on with the NHL— Roger Millions (@RogMillions) June 27, 2013
The Shanny intrigue ended with a whimper today when Roger Millions reported he has decided to stay on as the NHL's disciplinarian rather than join the Flames organization.
We can't know exactly why Shanahan decided against the move, but it makes me at least raise an eyebrow to see him prefer what is perhaps the league's most thankless job over moving into a senior management role here in Calgary.
It's unclear whether the Flames are still actively looking to add a guy like Shanahan to the org or if the opportunity was tailor made for the former superstar specifically. I'll guess we'll see.
For now, Ken King remains on top.
