The only reason he's gotten a sniff this year is because of injuries He's a capable third-liner, but not as effective as Winnik, Moore, or Galiardi. One could argue that given his skillset, he's even less preferable than Desjardins or Handzus on the bottom lines. Talent wise, at least in my eyes, he is inferior to Sheppard; that is another road block in his way.
I don't even know what to say to the bolded part...I don't have a lot of hope that Sheppard is ever going to turn into much of anything, but that 'talent' that you're talking about, he hasn't shown it outside of his Junior career. If I had to choose between Wingels and Sheppard it's a no brainer for me.

Injuries are a pretty big reason why a lot of prospects get ice time they might not otherwise get and Wingels has been very good.

If Winnik and Moore are bothing wanting $2.5mil/yr contracts one of them can walk.

This is the problem with talking about next years roster while the season is still going...there is a whole lot of uncertainty.
