    Wheeler is haunting me

    So on the Jets board I visit there is a lot of excitement about the Thrashers.
    But in the last two days a whole bunch of comments have popped up about how great it would be to have Wheeler.
    I'm trying to expain to them that, yes, those highlight reel goals look great, but a mild breeze can push him off the puck and we don't want him on our future team.

    I can't get away from this guy even when he's traded.

    Red, much like the Leafs with Colborne, you can't allow them to get in your head. Wheeler was a 5th overall draft pick, that's what excites them. He is nothing more than a soft player.

    COD,
    I agree in some part with what your saying, but I think colborne should excite toronto.  Boston drafted him as a project, as a skilled center with size, he is developing well and still has the prospect to be just that.. Big guys take longer to develop and he is still young, hurt me to see him involved in the trade but realistically we have too many skilled centers here as it is..

    Never fear. You won't know who BIG WHEEL is in 3 years. Maybe he will work in a department store in Atlanta????? Or a pastry shop selling "CREAM PUFFS"!!!!!

    Wheeler is the best in the NHL...at tripping over the blue line

    After skating past two defenders with a blaze of speed, Wheeler would usually be offsides or be checked off the puck by the smallest of defenders. Don't worry Red Losipeg will jetison his potential azz to Toronto in the next Alberta clipper.

    What I meant was they both are big bodies but play very soft. I don't see him as a number 1 center in this league at all. But I could be wrong.

    That was the fear at his draft class, but I haven't heard much of that since.. Even if he pans out as a good number 2, big number 3 (jordan staal) if your toronto would you be dissapointed?

    Don't worry Red when Dudley and Ramsey walk away from the abritrator's ruling there will be no need to worry.

    At a whopping -26, Dennis Wideman is not haunting me!

    Honestly, yes I would be because that team is full of 2's and 3's. I say if Colborne turns into a Wheeler type then he turned out like I thought. Not saying it's bad but I don't see him being anything special, much like the Leaf fans are saying.

    COD,
    that team is full of #2-3 guys on that team, Staal would be an upgrade at center for them, though he is a #2-3 for the pens was kind of my point.. I doubt colborne turns into wheeler, but who knows. I havent heard much about "soft play" in recent years, other then one article saying that concerns for his commitment to hockey where the reason he fell to 16, and how smart the bruins looked for drafting him.

    Addition by subtraction, don't know about you but I'm stunned at how different this team is with the mere addition of 3 guys. 

    It's been a while since we'fe seen one of those no emotion no effort no one moving their feet losses.

    Perhaps its a confidence factor that's contagious.
