Bird in the hand and all that...

Plus, Sheppard has recieved third line ice time. A lot of chances and he has looked good, but in the end, not nearly enough production.

I'd be more willing to take that kind of risk on a younger player with a ton of potential who could "play up to it" (think Couture, or even a more developed Hertl).
