Many of us had an unrealistic expectation that this kid would be able to come in and win physical battles against NHL veterans just because he's so big. When some of the other kids get a call up and we see their weaknesses exposed, their stock will drop too.
You watched a game where he played six minutes and drove in to play against an extremely physical St. Louis team. He didn't have a great game. But having watched his 72 games in the AHL plus playoff run if you think Sheahan is going to get pushed around a bunch prepare to be surprised. Sheahan and Glendening are probably the best two prospects in terms of board play down in the AHL, very solid on their skates. He isn't overly physical in the hitting department though, but he doesn't shy away from contact either. We will see with another off-season to get a little stonger cannot imagine you will see the same and hopefully he gets more than a game and 11 shifts to prove his point this time.
