I would assume most NHL franchises will be making phone calls to Wheeler's agent...you'd be stupid not to. Phoenix spent all sorts of time and money allowing him to develop and now he screws them over royally and is going to basically be able to pick his team. Remember, he doesn't have much wiggle room...he is bound by the entry level contract for his draft year as a max...therefore, teams know the asking price and if you see him in the NHL lineup as soon as next season...you make the call. If you're either not willing to spend the money or can't see him fitting into your 2008-09 lineup...then you're going to pass.
