As others have said, he needs to find chemistry and start gelling with the right mix. He has not had the benefit (I know, not yet earned, but you can't earn it if not given the opportunity either) of playing in the top 6 with more skilled players.
The last third of last season he showed what he could do given the ice time on the top 2 lines. I remember 2x last year when he came into Tampa and helped beat the Bolts.
I'm not saying Shannon is a bad player or that he will bust with us, I'm a big believer of the kid but reality is that he has been mediocre with us so far, he has a lot of time to improve though.
It just pisses me off to see Tyrell in the AHL when he could be playing with us instead of Jones or Ritola for example
