So was Johan Franzen. Powerforwards usually take longer to develop. And in college he was on a low scoring team that demanded defense first and Sheahan was always usually used in critical shutdown roles and didn't get a chance to work on his offense.

Wings scout are projecting him to be a goal scorer and be a late bloomer like Johan Franzen. Franzen was also a 4th liner that would never become a 3rd line player... now he gets 1st and 2nd line duties with Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

Just sayin'.

Sounds like you don't much understanding what you're talking about in regards to the projection of this particular player. Jim Nill expects him to be a point producers, that's why they burned up their 1st round pick to get him.
