I don't know if I agree with that. The Wild had no need to move Sheppard, he wasn't costing them cap space or medical expenses. A 3rd is a good return for sure, but not a rip off. I don't see the point. It's not like the Wild were looking to clear cap space or something. They traded an asset for a pick, not a great asset, and not a great pick.

I honestly believe the Sharks just wanted Sheppard. DW may have let Fletcher 'win' the deal as a show of good faith, but beyond that, there is nothing more to it.

And I'm fine with it.
