So now it's 30 goals? What happened to 35? What happened to 50 goal scorer in 2 years? What happened to the comparisons to Mario Lemieux?
He had 38 points this year, that ties him for 172nd in the league in scoring. And given how many players are tied, I'd guess there are at least 250 players in front of him in the league.
Yes, he has talent. He's got good hands, but not such great hands that he can rely on that to the exclusion of other aspects of the game, hitting in particular as everyone on the planet recognizes. Krecji has better hands than Wheeler and is in fact a better player.
He has potential. Yes.
He is NOT a shoe in.
Will he improve, probably, but the big question is by how much?
He has a lot of hard work ahead of him to become better in this league.
Another question, will he do that hard work?
So why will GM's come begging on their knees for this guy as you say?
Look, it would be a really nice thing in this world if EVERY Bruin could pot 35 goals next year, but that's not going to happen. You have to ge realistic. Realistically Wheeler is nothing that special right now. Realistically, both Hall and Seguin will put up more points than Wheeler next year. Realistically I see Wheeler as a 30 goal scorer as his full potential in this league and it would be great if that happens, and that won't be next year.
