A lot of Sheahan's increased offense has to do with his role.  ND played a defense first system, and with the Grifs he was their shut down center, again focusing more on defense.  Now he's being allowed to play more offense, and he's producing.  That doesn't mean he's a sure fire #2 center, but I think he can play the grinder role for a couple skilled wingers, like Steve Rucchin did with Anaheim, only to a lesser extent.  At worst I think he'll be a big bodied defensive 3rd line guy.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!
