10:45 AM ET 06.16 | The Calgary Flames apparently believe they need more hockey minds running the organization to help change their fortunes. Brendan Shanahan, the long-time NHL star who's spent the past couple of seasons doling out supplementary discipline, is apparently interested in trying his hands at running a team. Whether a marriage will come remains to be seen, but according to multiple reports, Flames majority owner Murray Edwards and president and CEO Ken King met with Shanahan Friday night in Calgary. According to sources, the club has not offered Shanahan a position, but the team is interested in adding somebody to oversee the hockey operations.

I'm not sure about that Shipper. Remember Harry's profile name.

LOL - That'll go well with Jay's executive stomach.

I was hoping for threads about the Bruins-Hawks series but instead we get rumours about Shanahan and comments from Oates about Crosby's season. Pffft, I'm heading over to the PGA threads for some U.S. Open chatter.

Yup, it's summer - something got stretched too far this time.

You're expecting something relevant to the big story in hockey today? You must not have been following these threads that long.

It looked like Chicago was out of gas at the end of the game. Even with that it took a great shot by Paille to win it.

The Bruins have been pretty dominant for 6 of the almost 9 periods so far. I like their chances as they roll back into Boston.

Bruins system vs. Hawks talent, so far it looks like the former is going to trump the latter. But then looks can be deceiving, especially in a series as tight as this one.

Please, please, please, please take the job in Calgary. Those of us who can't stand you as a disciplinarian will break out the champagne and celebrate! Trouble is .... we'll have to put up with your replacement. :-(

No arguments there. But, I do think the Bruins dismantled the Pens with robotic precision. It was surgical. Nothing wrong with executing a system to perfection. In fact, I think the Bruins lost Game 1 because they didn't and won Game 2 when they got around to executing it. I expect more of the same in Games 3 and 4. Ultimately, the team that makes the fewest mistakes and the team that capitalizes on them will win. I happen to think the Bees are better at it than anybody else, especially when they put the hurt on the opposition.

Your comment suggests that you think the Bruins don't have as much talent as Chicago. That is incorrect.The system Boston employs requires disciplined players with lots of talent to make it work. I'm starting to wonder how many cups this Bruins team will have to win before people start realizing that this is a damn good team, not just a bunch of robots executing Clode's system to perfection.

I agree Boston is loaded with talent and they are a damn good team, it's just that they're mostly recognized for how well they execute Julien's system so I jumped on that band wagon in my last comment.
