Sheahan's and Jurco's problem is that they're not yet coping with the pace you need in the offensive zone. They're not winning the board battle to keep a play alive, or they're overcautious making the right play. As a reflection they shoot the least out of the forwards in the top9. If you don't shoot, you don't score. I don't think Sheahan's gonna earn offensive minutes by playing defense. He's not even a regular on the 2nd PP unit. Start with splitting up Sheahan and Jurco I'd say, no matter the line.
Sheahan is cautious to a fault. I would consider moving him to the wing at some point, although his future is clearly as a center. Jurco just looks green to me, which is understandable given his age. Again, that line has spent so little time in the offensive zone the last couple of games that something needs to change.
