    Wheeler

    I think Wheeler is only worth about $2.0 million

    If we could sign him at $2.0 million that would be ok with me.

    But what happenings if the Bruins let him walk?

    Any extra cap space? and who would we get to play 3rd line wing?

    answers?????

    Look around the league at what other 20 goal scorers make, then factor in Wheeler's youth.  Let me know what you come up with then.

    Matt Moulson just signed for 2.45 million per and put up 30 goals this year.  Also looking at Perrons signing not sure how Wheels gets 2.5..

    Re: Wheeler

    If he doesn't want to sign let him walk. The Bruins have kids in the system dying to get up and make their mark. He needs to prove himself for at least one season as being worth the money. PC can't afford to over pay another player, and Wheeler has to know that there are kids in camp ready to jump in and take his spot. It's all about how bad he wants to be in Boston, or the money. Either way, I know I wouldn't give him more than 1.75mil. It's not being cheap, there is potential to make more considering his age. He's just not there yet.

    I don't know where you're going with this logic. The arbitrator's ruling is binding on the player. He can't NOT sign. The Bruins can walk away from the award if they so choose, but Wheeler can't.

    Re: Wheeler

    I really dont see how being a 20 goal scorer today is worth a pay raise like that. IMO 20 goals as a foward makes you serviceable. It means you arnt an offensive liability. if its someone that has shown big numbers in the past and or brings other things to the table so be it, that can be taken into account. from 875k - 2.5 mil? why? for what?

    fine keep him in town if you want to let him develop. pay him 2.5 mil when he earns it. at 23 years old he should be working his butt off to build a career and warrant respect and big money. "where's the beef?"

    Lots of flaw to this list as well, anyone still on their EL contract will not be used. they are signed to league standard contracts..

    Also centers will not be used, playing center in itself is a more valuable position.

    And appearantly goals are the entire barometer for worth according to your scale, no points, no mins, hits, plus minus?

    He writes for Eklund.  It is worth nothing.  His sources are probably Eklund and Eklund's cat.  That value is a legitimate guess of anyone who takes a look at it.

    Re: Wheeler

    With 12K currently in cap space, and with Sturm's $3.5M on LTIR, it gives us $3.512M to sign both Seguin and Wheeler. By looking at Taylor Hall's contract, and past #1 and #2 picks in the draft (Tavares, Stamkos, etc.), it looks like Seguin will have a 900K cap hit with incentives. That leaves the Bruins with $2.612M left to sign Wheeler. If he receives more than this, the Bruins will have 2 options: 1.) Trade Savard or someone else to make room, or 2.) Walk away and see what else is out there in FA. Some options would be Guerin (I hope not), Afinogenov, Torres, Fedotenko, and perhaps even Lee Stempniak if no other real offers come in.

    Re: Wheeler

    NAS, I agree. I was just saying that if we walked away from Wheeler, that those are the possible options.

    If it's more than the $2.6M I'm not gunna get mad at Wheeler. He's just trying to maximize what he thinks he's worth. After all, we wouldn't be in this situation if PC didn't hand out contracts like a drunken sailor. So if there's anyone to blame, it's PC.

    Well if they have to walk away from Wheeler They could sign both Guerin and Satan. Then they could add Recchi to the line and instead of having the 700 lb line they could have the 120 year old line.

    Now that's funny.

    They are not walking away from Wheeler, unless, maybe possibly something totally nuts happens like he gets awarded 4 million or something.

       If Wheeler is awarded over $2.6M and PC decides to walk what's stopping him from continuing to negotiate with Wheeler's agent? If we refuse the offer he just becomes an UFA. We'll bidding against 29 other teams then, but where else is he going to go and be surronded by such talented youth while contending for the cup?

    It seems like it is taking forever for the arbitrator to make a ruling.  It makes me wonder if the hearing was a particularly contentious one. 

    For all of the bashing of Wheeler's play last season, I do hope that he is re-signed at a reasonable salary (relative to other ridiculous NHL salaries).  He really could be a star in the making.  It is simply too early in his career to tell.

    They have 48 hours, barely 24 have passed, but part of me wonders if they may be taking longer because numbers are close.. if a player is seeking 7 and a team is offering 2 its a lot easier to say 5 is a fair number, take it or walk away, then if the bruins are at 2.1 and wheeler is at 2.8 and they can't come to an agreement in the middle..

    So arbitration works both sides go into the meeting and state what the player wants for pay or what the team is willing to pay for said player.That makes sense, but can the arbitrator say this player is worth less than the player wants but is also worth less than the team wants to pay. So he gets another figure?

    The figure has to be somewhere inbetween or exact.
