James Sheppard on the block?
Looking at the guys that the Wild brought in this summer, they've given themselves some real depth down the middle with the signings of John Madden and Matt Cullen. I guess with the injuries to PM Bouchard being more severe than originally thought they felt it was necessary to bring in another centre.
But having said that they've got Mikko Koivu as their number 1, and are really paying Cullen to be a number two, which I believe he is capable. John Madden would fill in as a checking line centre, but I don't think Sheppard fits in with this team anymore unless you pencil him in at #2 and push Cullen and Madden down. There has been some other speculation on the internet that Sheppard could be on the block.
Keep an eye on this one
