Reporter Exposes Brendan Shanahan's Controversial Rules

Published January 31, 2023 at 8:40
Brendan Shanahan's Shana-plan has been in place for nearly half a decade. In that time, the Toronto Maple Leafs have been unable to make it past the first round of the playoffs. It's safe to say that ownership is growing frustrated with Shanahan, but a reporter has revealed that the players may be growing frustrated as well.

On TikTok, the friend of a Toronto reporter revealed some of Shanahan's odd tactics.

For one, the Leafs have had the same goal song for five years. While many are tired of the Hall & Oates tune, it appears the reason it's sticking around is because Shanahan's kids like it!

One that assuredly frustrates the players is the restriction of beer in the locker room. We've seen players like Mitch Marner be showered in water after big milestones, while we are certain they would rather be showered in beer.

This definitely makes Ilya Samsonov nostalgic for the beer-shower he shared with Alex Ovechkin after every win in Washington.

The underlying comedy in this is that Shanahan was a pretty dirty player when he was in the league. Finishing his career with over 2500 PIMs, he likely experienced his fair share of locker room beer!

We will see if the Leafs go all the way this year. If they do, maybe these tactics work!
