In the 2 games Sheppard has played, it looked to me that he improved from one game to the next. Yes, he only had limited time but he looks like he understands the defensive side and is working hard.
Ya I like what I've seen from both of them. Irwin especially of course. To say Sheppard is probably rusty is an understatement and so far he looks like he's on the right path. I dont think sending him back to the AHL would be in his best interest.
