You know absolutely nothing about Wheeler because Wheeler is exactly the type of player who went out and did all of those things.

If 10% of Wheeler's work ethic could rub off on Kessel it would make Kessel a much better player.
So let me get this straight, I just said that Wheeler is a pansy who doesn't back check, and you came back at me with, "you know nothing about Wheeler...Claude Julien told Wheeler that he's a pansy who doesn't back check, and Wheeler is working on improving these aspects of his game"


For years, numerous Leaf coaches "tried" to get Alexei Ponikarovsky to play physical.
