Interest in Blake Wheeler

Not sure if this has already been said, but Howard Berger said the Leafs have shown interest in Blake Wheeler today on "The Game Plan"

I ****ing hate Berger, but I do like the idea of having Blake Wheeler. Only problem is, he needs some heart, determination, and needs to use his size properly.

Then again, if we trade for him, sooner or later we're going to be the Toronto Flaming Bruins...

Wheeler and our 2011 1st back is MORE than good enough for me for Kaberle.

That's a deal that would be very solid for the Leafs if tehy can pull it off. Get a young 2nd line RW with size and a 1st rounder next year to use in acquiring a top line LW.

Do you think Boston will go for it?

Bruins fan here. Toronto would have to take a salary dump to make any deal like that work. Kaberle makes about $4 million and Wheeler will probably come in around 2-2.5 ... which Boston still can't fit. Toronto would have to take Ryder too.

Bet they wouldn't. I think Chia would love to have the chance to potentially have dealt Kessel for 2 lottery picks.

I hated not having our pick this year. It would be great to get our 2011 1st back again!

It would be great to be in control where we pick, not where someone else will pick. Adds too much stress too the games, no good for the heart.

For the Maple Leafs to get Wheeler and their first back, if they have to take Ryder to make the money work then I would guess Burke has to do it. Tough pill to swallow though.

If we got Wheeler, we would have the 5th overall from 2004, 2006 and 2008. See the pattern? Oh Garth Snow, where art thou?

Not too sure about this, personally I'm not very interested. Of course Wheeler is American though so Burke probably loves him.

Wheeler is fast and no-doubt skilled, but he took a step back from his rookie season, and he plays like he's 5'10" instead of 6'4", he rarely uses his frame, and many games he plays lazy without any heart or determination. I'd rather have someone else, and I don't want to send Kabs to Boston...Kabs + Chara = nightmare

If the Leafs trade Kaberle, they better get more than just Blake Wheeler in return. And no, I don't mean Michael Ryder. I'm really starting to think he won't be traded, and all of the speculation will be for nothing. The first round of the draft will come and go tonight and the Leafs will be spectators.
