I wish we got Ville Leino. instead, we ended up signing some other chump Janne Lahti, who ppl had penciled in as our 3rd liner power forward. too bad he didnt even last in the AHL. Bozak would be nice tho, him and Chipchura could be a solid 3 and 4th line centers for the team for the future
And I don't think Wheeler would of been given a fair chance to make the team like he was in Boston.
Trotter is also a year younger than Wheeler and two years young than Brunnstrom. He could still become the best player of the bunch. He's having a pretty decent rookie season in Hamilton.
I doubt Trotter comes close to Wheeler personally, I saw a lot of Wheeler and while he was inconsistent for sure, at times he could be a dominate player, nice hands not very physical for a big guy though. As for Trotter having a good year in Hamilton, that's not the case, he's already been benched a couple of times by Lever. He does have some nice hands though, can dish the puck, deke and a decent shot.

We got Danis who I know the flyers tried to sign, too bad it didn't really work out either. Hard to complain though when the club is drafting well year after year.
