The Detroit Red Wings plan to hold on to forward Brendan Shanahan, general manager Ken Holland said. Holland said yesterday he has no plans to move Shanahan, who is entering the final year of his contract, and expects him to be at training camp in September. "I've had no conversations with any other team or general manager and at this point I have no plans to talk to anybody in the league regarding Brendan Shanahan," Holland said. The Red Wings also will offer associate coach Barry Smith a one-year contract extension, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Brendan Shanahan stuck to his word and agreed to a 1-year deal with the New York Rangers yesterday. The 38-year-old left winger had 29 goals and 62 points with the Rangers last season, his first with New York. Following the Rangers' second-round playoff elimination, Shanahan said he wanted to continue his career and had no interest in playing anywhere but New York. "There was never any doubt what Brendan's intentions were or on [general manager] Glen Sather's part that he wanted Brendan back," Shanahan's agent, Rick Curran, told the Associated Press in a phone interview.

Brendan Shanahan is leaning toward returning for a 20th NHL season, and wants to stay with the New York Rangers. Sporting a clean-shaven face and full-toothed smile, the 38-year-old forward spoke yesterday after his end-of-season interviews with general manager Glen Sather and coach Tom Renney. He hasn't come to a final decision whether to continue his surefire Hall of Fame career, but that is the direction his mind has taken him. "My instincts are that I will probably play, but it's something that I'm going to think over," he said in front of dressing-room stalls full of practice gear no longer needed this season.

Brendan Shanahan is retiring from the NHL after 21 seasons and an almost certain Hall of Fame career. The 40-year-old forward announced yesterday that he wouldn't play again. After going through training camp with the New Jersey Devils, the team he spent his final season with, he and the club mutually parted unexpectedly shortly before opening night of the season. Shanahan, who scored 656 career goals, decided to leave the Devils in October one day after he was told there was no spot for him on New Jersey's top three lines.

Two games, six goals. That's the way it can go when Brendan Shanahan gets hot. Shanahan broke open a tight game with three consecutive second-period goals as the Detroit Red Wings defeated visiting San Jose, 7-1, last night, keeping the Sharks winless in regular-season games in the Motor City. It was the 10th career hat trick for Shanahan, who also scored three times Saturday at Pittsburgh, handing coach Scotty Bowman his 1,000th regular-season win. "He's a big player," Bowman said.

Brendan Shanahan, a star left wing with the St. Louis Blues who broke his ankle during the playoffs, was traded last night to the Hartford Whalers for top young defenseman Chris Pronger. A big scorer who finished with 20 goals last season, Shanahan injured his ankle in the fifth game of the playoffs, and the Blues were eliminated in the first round by Vancouver. Shanahan was often at odds with coach Mike Keenan. During the season, Keenan criticized Shanahan's toughness and work ethic, and Shanahan sulked after the Blues traded linemate Craig Janney to San Jose.

The longest Stanley Cup drought in the NHL threatens to grow even longer. Grant Fuhr notched his fourth playoff shutout as the visiting St. Louis Blues defeated the Detroit Red Wings, 2-0, in the opener of their Western Conference series last night. "It starts with defense," St. Louis forward Scott Pellerin said. "We're just trying to go in there, knock guys around, and see what happens. " Geoff Courtnall and Pierre Turgeon scored first-period goals for St. Louis, a team that took Detroit to double overtime in Game 7 of the second round a year ago before bowing out. And that was with backup Jon Casey subbing while Fuhr recovered from a knee injury.

Shanahan, who has 27 goals for the season, had two power-play goals in the second period and scored twice more in the third. "Some great passes," he said. "You look at all my goals, it was basically me shooting off the setup.

MIKE BABCOCK didn't hesitate. Addressing reporters in Detroit yesterday for the first time since his Red Wings were eliminated by Braydon Coburn and Tampa Bay on Wednesday night in Game 7 of their first-round NHL playoff series, Babcock said he struggled on Thursday. "The worst day I've had coaching in Detroit, period, in my 10 years here was [Thursday], bar none," Babcock said. "So was that because I thought in my heart we were going to win that series and that we should still be playing?

  WHEN TOM Wilson's hit on Brayden Schenn made it all the way to a phone hearing yesterday with the NHL's Department of Player Safety, many assumed it was a foregone conclusion that Wilson would be suspended. Wilson, 19, did not receive any supplementary discipline from Brendan Shanahan yesterday, nothing so much as a fine. For the Flyers, it ended up being a no-harm, no-foul situation, since Schenn remained in the lineup in last night's 5-4 win over the visiting Blue Jackets.

RALEIGH, N.C. - As a direct result of Ray Emery's pummeling of Washington goalie Braden Holtby in Washington's 7-0 whipping of the Flyers last Friday, the NHL is considering a rule change that will be discussed at the general managers meeting in Toronto on Tuesday. The NHL will discuss a 10-game suspension for goalies leaving their zone to instigate a fight, league sources told the Winnipeg Free Press. It would be similar to the player-leaving-the-bench rule to join a fight. "It's not my job to make the rules.

RALEIGH, N.C. - NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was outspoken last week, condemning the Flyers and Ray Emery's actions against the Capitals. He said it's not the way the game is played anymore. Yesterday, NHL vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan took it one step further. "I hate what Ray Emery did," Shanahan told Rogers Sportsnet's Hockey Central at Noon show. "I don't like it. I wouldn't like it if I were a teammate of his, I wouldn't like if it I were an opponent of his. " Yet, Shanahan admitted that he could not give Emery a suspension for skating down the ice and raining blows on the head of unwilling combatant Braden Holtby, Washington's goaltender, during a melee between the teams.

WILL THIS be the year?

NEWARK, N.J. - Despite the devastating loss of an entire season in 2004-05, when the NHL and the players association last met at the bargaining table, commissioner Gary Bettman said he does not understand the negativity surrounding the impending expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement. Bettman says the NHL is in a different place now. It's easy to feel that way after posting revenues of $3.3 billion this season, marking the seventh straight year the league has rewritten its record.

THE PLAYERS in the Flyers' locker room understand that league discipline czar Brendan Shanahan has a difficult job. Some called it impossible. Shanahan's task is to dole out supplemental punishment that will deter players from trying to kill one another out there. Some of his rulings have prompted more answers than questions. In the first week of the playoffs, Shanahan handed out eight suspensions, including two to Pittsburgh for violations against the Flyers in the first round.

IF THE FLYERS have any dreams of digging out of their self-created crater against the New Jersey Devils, beginning Tuesday night with Game 5, they are going to have to do it without their top point producer and leader. That's because the NHL decided on Monday to suspended Flyers star Claude Giroux for one game as a result of his high hit on New Jersey's Dainius Zubrus late in Game 4. The suspension seemed to surprise many around the Flyers organization, since the game that Giroux - who previously had a spotless disciplinary record - will miss what just happens to be the one game in which the Flyers are facing elimination for the first time this season.
