    Wheeler is in Boston to stay

    Stop talking about trading Wheeler ....this would be the worst trade ever in the BRUINS history ....remember Neely from Vancouver ??? This would be even worst ...this kid has the size, the talent and played fairly well in the series ..Game 7 he was one of the best player along with Looch and Recchi ......

    Besides I would have to change the number and the name on my Bruins jesey...

    "Wheeler in Boston to stay" -- Perhaps driving one of those Duck Tour Boat things for a living. Didn't see the "best player" thing going on. Seems to be leary of body contact and spends way too much time in munchkinland. I'm willing to give him more time but if the right deal comes along -- sionara.

    Not sure why you wasted your money buying that hacks jersey. We will probably have to put up with watching him again next year unfortunately. Wheeler's play was acceptable for a 3rd liner in this series, thats not having a good series.

    If Whitfield doesn't come back, I'll have to get another jersey too.

    Back to Robbinsville, Blake.

    5th in scoring when it doesn't matter much - last in scoring when it does.

    Still only 23...still has huge potential...seems like he hurt himself by having such a great rookie season cuz a lotta people around here seem to think he blows now haha...I, however, am not one of them...

    I think he'll back with the B's next year...unless he wants an absurd amount of money...

    There is no doubt that he has the potential.  The problem is that you can have all the skills in the world but if you have zero confidence you will never succed in this league.  Mental toughness is very important!

    he has 3rd line talent. does finish his checks often enough. if he wants more than 1.5 mil he should be gone.

    his upside could be like knuble but he doesnt drive to the net often enough and his shot is not good enough to score from 20-25 feet out.

    great penalty killer but takes too many shifts off.

    sorry, can't compare Wheeler to Kessel....  although he's a handful off the ice, Kessel knows how to find the back of the net....  Wheeler's not worth keeping at any price....  he peaked during the first half of last year alongside Krejci and Ryder but his game has gone south ever since....

    I pretty much agree with this post.

    It's tough to fault the kid completely, although he has been frustrating to watch.  He was a victime of his training camp success who peaked in the first three months of his rookie season.  If he hadn't been so good in training camp, he would have gotten sent down where his game could have grown at a normal pace. 

    He was told to put on 15 pounds of muscle last summer.  So he did.  The extra weight slowed him down considerably.  Even when his skating started to come around, he still played like a small player, avoiding contact more often than not.  Maybe he will put it all together and be a good 30+ goal guy in a couple of years.  Maybe he won't.  Maybe he has a fear of pain that will keep him from ever reaching his potential.

    It will be a while before anybody knows for sure if Wheeler can be an impact maker.  In the meantime, I would be happy if they signed him for $1.5 Mil.  I could even live with $2 Mil for a year or two.  If a team wants to throw a bunch of money at him, let 'em.

    If any of you guys think Wheeler should be resigned, then you are more delusional than I originally thought.  On what basis should Chiarelli resign him?  The fact that he had 1 good year with the team?  Ryder, Wideman, Hunwick, and yes, Tim Thomas, were all resigned based upon only a few years of service.  And how do you think those deals ended up?

    In Response to Re: Wheeler is in Boston to stay:
    The kid needs to heavily train this offseason, put on 20 lbs of muscle.  I agree he has the size, speed, and hands (at least last year he did), to be a difference maker, but he needs to bulk up in order to bang in front of the net and win battles.
    Posted by joebondo


    Joe,
    He tried that last summer.  After trying to bulk up, his skills weren't as sharp and he still didn't play any more physical than the year before.

    I think he will always have decent skills- a 20-25 goal scorer who plays soft hockey.  There are plenty of guys like this.  Not bad for a 3rd liner but if they pay him anything more than $1mil- they are overpaying and will handcuff themselves even more.

    I love the fact that I gave 4 comparisons to Wheeler, but you only mentioned 2 based on their age.  That's a great way to be open-minded.

    I see a guy who's not playing to his potential EVERY night, I think that satisfies people who think he's Mario - and those that don't.  The trouble all year and of course especially in the playoffs was that guys brought their 'a' game when it suited them and not when it was needed.

    The Bruins - any team - who is a legit contender for the cup needs to have ALL their guys able to bring it on when they need to, not when it suits them.

    I say wait on Wheeler until half way thru next season, if he hasn't wired his brain and but together by then, then see who will take him.
