Isn't that basically what I said? Except for the 4th line gig... Jim Nill projects him to be a "big scorer", (not my words, Jim Nill's words - read below).

And I'm not saying this because I am a homer, I am saying this because that is his ACTUAL projected ceiling was said by Jim Nill and HF rankings.

Read the sources below:

“I don’t like to make comparisons with young players. It’s not really fair to them. But he does remind me of Johan Franzen. He’s got a big, thick body. He’s been a big scorer. That’s what we project him to be.” — Red Wings assistant GM Jim Nill

And here is HF's projection:

Quote:
Sheahan has all the skills necessary to be a power forward type player. He possesses excellent shooting and playmaking ability. His large frame allows him to hold onto the puck for extended periods of time. Is an all-around excellent prospect, showing himself to be more than capable of playing defensive hockey as well.

Projects to be a second or third line center in the NHL. Will compete for a roster spot with the Red Wings in training camp, but will likely end up playing his first full AHL season in 2012-13.

So.... don't listen to me, I'm hyping him up
