As far as the Cleary comparison, he scored 115 points in 63 games in the OHL as a 17 year old. There's just no comparison to be made there - it was much clearer that he had the offensive tools under the surface. Sheahan has never scored much at any level.

I have never understood what people see in this guy that gets them so hot and bothered. He's big and can skate. Ok. So what? I need to see him put up some points - somewhere - before I buy that he's a legitimate prospect of any kind. But that's me.
That's why many project him as a solid 3rd line center. No, his offensive potential isn't very high, but he is already good defensively.
