My guess is that Wheeler will indeed make the team but I still don't think the AHL would be a bad idea.

I'm just confused to why this is so amusing.
No IM not saying its not a great pickup. Hell I wish the Canucks would of landed this guy. Its just you would think he would want to be in the NHL next year right? He could of went to any of the 30 teams he wanted to, he left College early must think he has a great chance of playing in the NHL next year. So for him to pick Boston then end up in the AHL I think it would be funny.
