Ah, that's who I was forgetting! Backes! Brown, Backes, Callahan, et al. Love it.
What I really like about Wheeler, beyond the obvious, is that he's growing, progressing, pushing himself to be better and better. He has a scoring touch now that I don't think he had several seasons ago. He's worked on his intensity, he's become a good leader, and I think he's actually gotten faster, quicker. I believe he has the potential to be one of the best players in the league, and I'll be very surprised - and pissed - if he isn't there in Sochi. Also, I'd take back all the bad things I've ever said about Holland if he were to somehow land Wheeler in a trade.
Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Wheeler
I would cry.
