I know what everyone says but I'll take the word of the coach over anyone. Sheppard = Mini Koivu...

This year will say a lot about all three of them. I'd rather wait and vote then.

Surprised to see I'm in the minority.

Ditto. He got a lot to prove this season but with Kovalchuk and Kozlov, he is their "third" best forward. Should be decent next season.

Sheppard is just a very good player. Last year as a rookie, he looked like a very solid NHLer as a 19 year old.

This year in the preseason, based on alot of Wild posters who saw him play, he got faster, stronger and smarter.

Leafs fans are very quick to overate their prospects and young players.......Tlusty hasn't done too much to warrent much credit.

Sheppard's slow start surprised me. Little's fast start did the same.

Not really, he wasn't expected to be in a big role coming into the season.

Little was expected to be a fantasy pool steal since he is supposed to start the season in a much larger role and he more than succeeded thus far. Sheppard was supposed to be in a bigger role, and so far has been given a lot of icetime. His lack of production surprised me the most.

Agreed somewhat. At this point though, Jiri looks that he is still developing. He looks lost out there, yet he also has the occasional flash. He creates alot of offensive chance when he is on the top of his game. Looks as though he will take abit more time to properly develop and his breakout season will most likely come after Little and Sheppard (maybe) have theirs.

I voted Sheppard a while ago because he was the safest pick. Little looks great though. He had phenomenal offensive talents in junior but I wasn't sure if they'd translate that great to the pros, he's made a quick adjustment in his second pro season.
