here is my story of what possibly happened:

around the trade deadlin the coyotes were looking at getting montoya and they had a deal in place witht he rangers with montoya for wheeler...two former high first rounders, and he probably caught wind of it....at that time the deal chaged to include hossa and the coyotes didnt think it was fair value to send sjostrom and wheeler so they changed it to leneveau who was also on the asking list....at that point wheeler didnt think he was wanted and instead of being traded and having no choice of where he is going he decided to hit UFA and pick where he wants to go....makes sense
