    Don't like it.

    I would rather they got rid of Ryder or Wheels.

    Wheeler:  24 years old, unrealized potential, not having a great season but still might get 20 goals (on pace for 18), inexpensive, healthy (has played 190 of 191 career games).

    Sturm:  32 years old, great two way player, more expensive, coming back from major injury.

    I'll keep Wheeler.

    NAS I am one that usually agrees with you most of the time or gets your humor... I realize you didn't say to get rid of Wheeler.
     Your comments regarding Wheeler are a bit on the thin side. He has not had a statistically good season from an offense stand-point. Other than that, he has played very well. A very responsible player on the ice defensively. Really backchecks well...doesn't give up on the play. IMO He thinks the game defensively and is taking the body quite a bit more too (biggest area of growth for him this year). No I am not Jack Edwards or Wheeler's mom...the offense will follow...
    Good Luck Marco, I will miss your goal celebrations!

    of course Brickley just commented that Wheeler should have taken the body in the d-zone...still improving...

    This analysis on Wheeler is way off.  The only accurate part is that he does backcheck hard, but this is because he's usually chasing after his own turnovers.

    Wheeler is not having a bad season, he is having a bad 2 years(out of a 3 year career).  Wheeler gets bumped off the puck easy, he wins very few one-on-one battles in the corners, and he turns the puck over more than any player on this team.  It is a shock that he is still on this team.

    The worst part is where on the ice his turnovers occur.  They are usually just over the offensive blue line.  For those that are well-versed in the game of hockey, turning the puck over in this area leads to odd man rushes in the other end.  You are taught in pee-wees to get a shot on net or get the puck in deep below the goal line...

    Tom, I was trying to offer positives and negatives for each.  I found many more positives for Wheeler and many more negatives for Sturm, but I tried to make them even.  LOL  See ya Marco, thanks for playing hard, and thanks for that awesome Winter Classic goal.
