Age 25
Height: 6'5"
Weight 205 lbs
Position Right-wing

I've been following him for awhile. Went fifth overall in the '04 draft ('yotes). He had a pretty rough go of it in his first several years on The Big Stage (though technically they weren't full seasons). He could've easily fallen off the face of the earth like so many in that spot do. What I like is that he didn't. He owned up to his shortcomings (e.g. serious lack of confidence, not nearly physical enough, questionable hockey IQ) and committed himself to improving upon them. It's paid off for him: he was good for 64 points (17 goals, 47 assists) last season, in 80 games played. (Of course, it helps that he flanks Evander Kane on the Jets' top line.)

They love him in Winnipeg. I'd love him on the Wings. What would it take to land him, and would it be worth it? If we could add Semin and Wheeler and lose, by way of trade, just one of Flip and Franzen (or could Wheeler be had without losing either of the two?), I'd be very happy with our top-6.

I'd love to see Wheeler on the Wings, but as a consolation i'll watch him on the Jets. No way the Jets trade him. Smiley loves playing here in Winnipeg and he's a fan favorite well above Kane or anyone else on the Jets.

It would only take a Filpula or Franzen, considering he is only making 2.5 Million. You could probably get him for two AHLers even. I like the idea, but I don't think Kenny is looking at him for a trade. Maybe more towards the trade deadline if we're missing that piece.

Yeah but they'd have to be two of our BEST prospects. Maybe we'd have to add a TooToo or something, hell I don't know.

I'd love Wheeler. If he were available.

I don't know who he is, but based on today, "let's sign him"!
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Why would the Jets trade Blake Wheeler?

Is that a logical question to start with?
