Sheppard has a smile on his face

(when does he not?)

Well the good news is that James Sheppard finally spoke after his injury. He didn't really say much other than that he learned how to be an adult (I guess Darby didn't do that) and that he's looking forward to returning, but at the same time there's no timetable.

Quote:
Sheppard gave no timetable for his return. But he said he's "ahead of the curve," is using an underwater treadmill in Eden Prairie and is getting his range of motion back.

He twice avoided the question when asked if he planned to file a grievance against the Wild for not paying his $803,250 salary.

"I think about getting back and playing hockey," Sheppard said. "Money was never why I was playing this game. It's still not. It's going to show my character and show my hard work, and that's the biggest reward."
There's also O'Sullivan and Cullen talk, but it has nothing to do with James Sheppard.

i can't imagine he'd win a grievance against the wild if he files considering the injury had nothing to do with a team sponsored event or anything related to training for his job on said team. maybe he was learning how to stay on his "feet" while running into large objects.

I don't see him winning anything more than what he's getting now, but on the plus side James has used that rehab time to work on his mustache skills.

I don't know what it is but Sheppard rubs me the wrong way with his quotes...or any interview for that matter.

For all I know he is a nice kid who wants to do well...but even before the "skating since three" incident, hearing that he was playing Xbox or some video game while Walz was going to optional practices, he made me want to punch him in the face to wake him out of his imaginary world.

I know that all hockey players need to be confident in themselves in order to be successful but he just comes across as either dumb or arrogant.
