    Wheeler Number

    Alright, the day is rapidly approaching...what salary do you think the arbitrator is going to award Wheeler, and do you think the Bruins will take it or walk away?

    I don't know - if they get the same arbiter, perhaps. But who knows? There's no concrete parameters; it's just one person's judgment/ruling.

    2.6 or less, then the Bruins take it. More and then the Bruins rely on one of the young guys. I say he's awarded 2.4

    Re: Wheeler Number

    For some reason 2.75Mil is the number that I think Blake will be awarded.

    With Sturm on LTIR, we are left with $3.512M. Seguin is a 900K cap hit, so unless Wheeler is awarded more than $2.6M then either he or someone else will not be on the Bruins this year.

    That's the number that I was thinking (dreading).  Hopefully Chiarelli can make a compelling case for a lower number.

    does potential matter in arbitration, past performance or both?

    David Perron was re-signed for a 2.15 cap hit after scoring 20G 27A.
    I expect Wheeler's award to fall between 2M and 2.5M.

    Agreed, should be in the same ballpark, although for pure talent level there is no comparison, edge to Wheeler , just needs to be more consistent and develop a bit of a harder edge to play with and develop some grit to go with his size.. Something tells me this arbitration is not going to go well for the Bruins , see past history.. Reading todays Globe this quote from the agent looks ominous...""Talks have been professional, but we agree to disagree on certain points of an agreement."

    Re: Wheeler Number

    It's interesting that the principles are all heading to Toronto, and that wheeler's agent indicated that they had a good discussion, but, do not agree with the Bruins perspective. As so many have indicated, Wheels and the B's should be at or near 2.3, which, based on this past year, is probably reasonable for the B's, but not acceptable to an agent squeezing for more. Do not understand Wheeler's perspective, but, we should remember that he turned down Phoenix, so his ego may be getting in the way of staying in Boston. If so, it could be that wheeler's personality, in the locker room, might be more abrasive than Savard's. Any comments on the alternatives  if the bruins do not accept the arbitrators decision??

    Re: Wheeler Number

    I think PC is setting the stage to walk away.  2.5 to 3million is way to much for this guy.  I would rather walk away and let a low cap guy like Caron or Marchand take his role in the lineup.  Or even a vet like Satan comes cheaper than Wheeler.  After watching last season, I would take Satan over Wheeler in a heart beat.  Save the cap space (and try to free up more if possible) to add a trade deadline player.

    Some of the facts and data permitted include:

    • Overall performance, including offensive and defensive statistics, from the most recent or past seasons
    • Games played and injuries
    • How long the player has been with the club or in the NHL
    • How the player contributed to team’s success or lack thereof in the most recent season
    • Intangible qualities including leadership or “public appeal” (direct term from the CBA) that don’t conflict with a player’s on-ice role and responsibilities
    • Comparable players (an arbiter cannot deem another player comparable unless he has been mentioned by one of the parties)

    I would rather walk at 2.5M, but I dont think its going to happen.  If they weren't prepared to give him 2.5M, then they would be shopping him avidly.  They have not been.

    Here's to hoping they (and Stanley) see something that I dont.

    Re: Wheeler Number

    I have a real bad feeling that no matter how this goes down, we're getting bitten in the @$$.  If Wheeler signs here, how long can he really stay after this?  I dont think arbitration looks good for a player, ESPECIALLY a young one that isnt scoring 30/30.  I think if we keep him, he stays a 20/20 guy thats a defensive liability.  If we let him go, I have a bad feeling he turns into a stud over the next couple seasons.  Right now, he isnt worth over 2.5.  Considering what hes accomplished, Id dont think he is worth more than 2, but anything under 2.4 he should stay.  Up to 2.7 is questionable depending on the long term plan for him, anything over 2.7 and he is gone.

    I think this might be the beginning of the end for Blake in Boston even just for the fact that they will be arguing and questioning Blake Wheeler's ability to play hockey with Blake in the room...

    That is never a good thing...

    You can be certain his agent has prepared him for it. He's not going in expecting to hear good things. 

    If everyone agrees with the arbitrator, and he has a good year, the Bruins will re-sign him to a longer-term contract. I doubt there will be any lingering hard feelings. It's a business, and he knows that.
