Should Buffalo sign Brendan Shanahan?

The Sabres have not exactly made a name for themselves in the free agent market, but they still have an opportunity to. While the list of available players is getting short, there is one big name that sticks out. Brendan Shanahan.

Obviously Shanahan is no longer the absolute top of the line player that he was in his time with Detroit, but he is still a solid player who can provide leadership and strength on the powerplay. Furthermore he only made $2.5 million last season, so bringing him in wouldn't exactly break the bank either. While the Sabres certainly are not short on forwards, most of Buffalo's players are on the right wing, while Shanahan plays on the left.

Is this a deal that is likely to happen? No, but it would be cool if it did.
