Ryan Shannon, who is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, wants to re-sign with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

"I think about that every day," Shannon said. "I love Tampa, I would love to come back after what was really an underwhelming season. I'm a lot more hungry for another opportunity to show what I can do." He underwent a procedure in March to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, which is projected to take four-to-six months to heal, but feels his recovery is ahead of schedule. Shannon finished the year with four goals and eight assists in 45 appearances, while earning $625,000.

To confirm an earlier post, Ryan Shannon will play on a line with Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis Tuesday.

The Lightning believe that Ryan Shannon can be a factor offensively if he continues to utilize his speed to generate scoring opportunities.

He recorded a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-2 loss to New Jersey by doing just that. "He has started to believe in his speed," coach Guy Boucher said. "On the first goal, instead of slowing down and looking for a play in the high zone, he took it down deep and made a great play. He's a smart player. He has great vision. On the other play, he had speed wide, took it in and kept skating and took a shot instead of looking for something pretty. (Reporters) were asking last week how he was and I said, 'You'll see that he's coming.' And I see a lot of good things." Shannon has had a tough start to this season with one goal and five points in 13 games, but he is projected to play with Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis on Tuesday night against Toronto.
