You got me! You won't see the name Wheeler on the back of my Jets jersey.

Years 20 and 21 should be for learning , so I don't expect a finished product yet. As for his sluggish start , I agree it hasn't been as sharp as could be or wanted , however I feel that 50% of that has been out of his control. His ice time in the first half of these games was puzzling to say the least , totally don't agree with Noel on that.

That was a great shot , terrific to see him score from there , but he will score the majority of his goals from in close imo , and he has been going to the net well. He's all right , he should be and will be much better , imo.

voted below, largely due to the poor start. But I really like how the team is trending during this roadtrip.

I wasn't expecting this team to be very good at all, but we've definitely been worse than I expected.

i thought we have been decent actually. rly deserved to win the nyr and the toronto game, and the tampa game could have went either way. .if we win just 2 of (conservative)those games were 6-5 with only 4 home games played so far.

i rly dont think were as bad as everyone is saying. just need to tighten up the D. i think we can stay in the playoff hunt for a while.

either way this team has got to be one of most entertaining teams to watch this year.

Little has done exactly that... Little. This guy used to be a consistent 30+ goal scorer in OHL. He needs to find his A-game.

You can't compare Wheeler to Little. Little is supposed to be playing good. Wheeler is streaky and not a top goal scorer. Wheels will be putting them in soon.

The team is doing slightly worse than I expected but only by a hair. Couple games they should of had in the bag. But I have faith they will get better over time. I'm hoping they can sneak into the last spot for the playoffs win or lose, I'll still be happy and expectations will be met.
