Shanahan looks on at a 22 year old version of himself after Canada’s victory at the 1991 Canada Cup. He would go on to tell of how he and an even younger Eric Lindros would sit in the dressing room amazed at the faces around them – Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Mark Messier, Paul Coffey – and how they would whistle to each other as a smooth and secret way to communicate their awe.
