Nice to hear Bob Barr talk for a change, I forgot he was even behind the bench. Bob Barr will help Shepp get ready

Shep "would add depth" and Barker "injured himself". One statement I highly doubt and the other doesn't surprise me. Can you guess which is which? Ya, sure, bring him on roadtrip. It's good luck. In Haiti.

If this team can make the playoffs with these kind of hits I don't see any other result than a Stanley Cup.

I suppose it has to be news because it's a Wild player on the comeback trail, but the thought of getting James Sheppard out there doesn't exactly quicken my pulse. Too bad the previous administration ruined the kid's shot at a career, we'll never know if he could have been a good player.

I think the Wild give him a two way contract next year, just like they will to Sullivan & give them a shot at redemption. If they can't cut it in the NHL maybe they can be valuble in the AHL. Both do have skill, its just both also lack passion & drive.

I think Shep has already had about five "last chances." So now he is going to come back from a major injury and make it in the NHL? Not. He wasnt good enough before he was hurt.

Grab Zherdev he was put on waivers this morning!

Give Shep a fresh start, trade him so he can put the Wild behind him and foucus on his future.

The light at the end of the tunnel is a truck, when you steer out of the way, keep your knees inside the vehicle you are riding in.

It's time to stop knocking Sheppard. We already know his past, and I don't think anyone in the Twin Cities expects him to amount to anything playing for the Wild. I was shocked to hear he's only 22, but it makes me feel even more strongly that he needs to latch on to another team and leave his Wild baggage behind him to get a fresh start elsewhere. I think of how Latendresse languished in Montreal before he came here....a new team with new expectations and a new system can do wonders for a career. I hope he finds success somewhere.
