Where would you guys rank him for his era, and all time amongst forwards? Shanny was one of the first players I ever saw play when I started watching hockey and what a great power forward he was. He would crush you with a body check, rocket a shot past the goalie, and then beat the crap out of you all on the same shift. Here late in his career he's not the same imposing figure but he will still get into a couple fights a year, and oh yeah still pop in 40 goals. He's a great leader, he's been everything you wanted in a hockey player for most of his career and is definitely one of my favorites. For the era, I can't think of a better power forward, Neely had a great peak but Shanny is as good if not better and he has longevity in his favor. You look at a guy like Jarome Iginla who may be the preminent power forward in the game today and he's really not close to where Shannahan was at his peak. Bertuzzi had a nice little run but that didn't last long. over the last 20 years he would have to be amongst my top 20 forwards.
