If a guy is gonna succeed, he's gonna succeed. After all of his years playing, being thrown into the NHL a little early or playing in the AHL a little late isn't gonna do much in the long run. The stars of teh NHL would've succeeded no matter what. No matter what we did, Shep wasn't gonna beast, and neither was Gillias. Sorry, but an extra year or two of AHL wasn't going to make him awesome. It was just a bad pick.
