Actually he did step up since Tatar started his mini slump. I think Sheahan just had a hat trick the other day. And he and Jurco are building some nice chemistry together.

The thing with Sheahan is he isn't going to be an offensive juggernaut anytime soon. He's been programmed and groomed by the Notre Dame coach to shut down first and foremost. Now that he is in the AHL, he will work on his offense...and he has (proven by his hat trick the other day).

The kid is 20 and could easily play on Detroit's 4th line right now. Give him a three or four more years and he will be the late bloomer 2nd line powerforward that Jim Nill projects.
