This is me holding my breath waiting another 8 years for him to develop...he has so much development to do before he's even a viable 13th forward. No hands.
The part about questioning his offensive potential is reasonable, the rest is obviously sarcastro hyberbole...but hyperbole nonetheless. Sheahan could easily be a very solid 3rd or 4th line center and have a very long NHL career. And it could start as soon as there is NHL hockey to be played.

I think he could benefit as much if not moreso than any DRW prospect with the lockout. Notre Dame was a less than ideal situation for Sheahan to develop. He'll never get a better opportunity than he will in GR to develop any semblance of a pulse as a top 6 forward.
