Wheeler was drafted by Phoenix and they didn't sign him in time so he became a UFA. I'm pretty sure the prerequisites for being a UFA are either 27 y/o or 7 years of service, neither of which Zherdev will have at the end of this year. I'm wondering if there are any flyers fans on this board who know the CBA well enough to be certain though
