Not writing Sheppard off but not going in with any expectations either. Would be be thrilled if he ends up being a decent 3rd liner.

Not with all the sliders down and the difficulty set to rookie.

Anyone know what his game is supposed to be like? Who was his projected comparable? (What current NHLer was his game projected to be similar to?)

He's pretty much Joe Thornton 2.0, right?

He was so good at COD that they asked him to serve in Seal Team 2.

But we know for sure that he wasn't indoctrinated. I question his commitment

Unless you have a high enough galactic readiness rating, then you see at the end a short clip of his chest rise as he takes a breath laying in the rubble.

He does play a lot of multiplayer. Wonder how high his war assets are?

Hey all,

Shep lives down the road in the summer and we see each other now and then. Friend of mine spoke with him tonight and he said his knee is 100% and "going into camp with a don't give a **** attitude." Meaning he's gonna giver nuts and hope for the best, not that he's not gonna try. So there's as good of an answer you'll get I believe.

Hope it works out for him, he's a real good guy.

I'm pretty sure the reason he never lived up to his potential was because of his "don't give a ****" attitude ....

Not gonna get into a pissing match on your board or anything but that's pretty unfair and just not true. He's been working out like a madman for 2 years. He felt smothered by Lemaire and didn't fit with the system, then got injured on a ride with other teammates, and is trying his best to become an NHL regular again.

Anyway, good luck to you guys and him again.

You'll have to forgive us here, we don't know enough about Shep besides what Wild fans have told us, so we don't have a very high opinion of him. I certainly hope that you're right and that he really earns that #3C spot. It's certainly there if he wants it.
