I would agree with this if he was a former '67

DW misses Bernier. That's the only possible explanation. He wants a new fat, lazy, slow former 1st rounder.

I hate Wellwood more than anyone in these forums, and even I'd rather have Wellwood than this guy. He's not even salvageable at this point, he's just really really bad. Not even so much as a flash of brilliance, just a complete bust.

So I guess a 2-year deal then? One in the AHL, and one in the big leagues?

We won't see him on the team this year, so DW must still be looking for the 3rd liner. I just don't know why he couldn't be had for a 5th ... it's not like the Wild organization particularly adores the guy.

I still dont know why he gave up a 3rd for this dude......Im extremely confused right now. A 2nd for Wallin was better value than this IMO.

Don't you guys see, DW wants to keep Patrick White, sign Steve Bernier and role a White-Sheppard-Bernier line.

It was probably agreed upon in one of the past trades and it was delayed due to Sheppard's knee surgery that was necessary. Poor trade in value on the face of it though.

i hold out hope sheppard could become a solid 2nd liner. he could play a similar way to thornton, and if jumbo can teach him to play like him, he could be a solid 60pt guy.

i can hope right?

Eh, it's a gamble move by DW. At the third round you'll be lucky to find an AHL player, and that's sort of what we got with this trade so it evens out there. He was also a top-10 first rounder so there's potential. Maybe he just needs a new coach and new scenery? I'm not saying it's a good gamble since it looks very risky, but if it pays off it will pay off huge.

My only hope is that with the connection Matt Shaw and Todd Mclellan have with the Wild org, that they know something we don't. Matt Shaw was an assistant and a video coach right? Maybe he saw something in the kid we humble posters don't. Anyway, that's just me being overly optimistic and trying to polish what is in all likelihood a massive turd. At best it's a gamble that he could be a decent NHL player at some point in the future, at worst Wilson just threw away a 3rd.

"James Sheppard has just sent the Sharks to the stanley cup finals!"

No really DW we still need a 3rd liner and we're good.. Seriously.

I'm pretty sure this is just for Worcester. Sharks feel he was rushed to the NHL, not properly developed, and Worcester is in desperate need of scoring forwards (which he was prior to the NHL). He is not waiver eligible, he will be in Worcester this season, he's not our 3rd line answer.

It's a 3rd in 2013. That's obviously a bit high, but for an org with 0 scoring forwards in the pipeline, it might have been worth it.

I'm not concerned... people are overvaluing 3rd round picks.
