He was traded to the sharks for a 2013 3rd round pick.
Im not a huge fan of Sheppard's, he was rushed into the NHL and that slowed his development so maybe if the Sharks used him right and gave him time he could pan out. And for that reason alone I wish we would have gotten more than a third, maybe a second or another almost NHL ready prospect. Im not really sure on this one, while I think we won the other two trades I think the Sharks won this one. Also how many Centre's do the Sharks need to accumulate? Thortan,Marleau,Pavelski,Couture now Sheppard and I dont remember who their 4th line centre was...Maybe they plan on shifting Sheppard to the wing? Anyways it seems like we have at least created a great bond with the Sharks team.
