What does that have to do with Wheeler?
I'm assuming he was pointing out that as a Leafs fan, you should want Savard to be traded instead. If I remember right, there were rumors of Burke going after Savard in the off-season. Otherwise, he just thinks Wheeler is a center, and I made more speculation than Eklund right there.
As people have noted, there are a lot of viable options for the Bruins to trade. I don't follow them really closely, but I tend to check out the forums at Hockey's Future a lot, so I do see players they harp on. Wheeler is usually the center of the discussion when they're talking about a defensive liability or players who have no heart.
Ryder makes sense because his performance has fluctuated up and down by 20 point increments for the past 5 years. Thomas makes sense because he's older, and they have a capable goalie playing back-up right now. Savard makes sense because they have really good depth at center. Wheeler makes sense because of all the knocks on his game.

The most popular choice among the Red Wings as to who would volunteer to play goalie – several Panthers did in their game – was Brendan Smith.
"He's pretty competitive and he seems to be good at everything," Justin Abdelkader said. "He'd volunteer himself."
Babcock was a bit more hesitant about Smith. "Yeah, yeah, just work on getting out of your zone," Babcock said
