wheeler sucks.

definitely a bad fit for the leafs..

value would be a 5th rounder and a weak prospect.

I wouldn't want Wheeler at any cost. He would be an immediate downgrade on our roster. Leave Kullemin, Kadri, Colborne, Schenn, Kessel, Aulie, and Phaneuf out of any stupid trade proposals.

Trade Kulemin for a centre and then acquire Wheeler? No thanks.

At this point Kulemin is a better overall player than Phil Kessel, although not as skilled. We should not deal him methinks.

If he was a LW I think I would be interested in him playing on the first line with Kessel and a yet to be determined center.

As a RW he is third on the depth chart behind Phill and Kule

I like how everyone is saying Wheeler sucks but he'd be the 4th leading scorer on the Leafs.

are you insane? you'd want KUELMIN in a deal for Wheeler? Kuelmin scored 30 goals in just his 3rd season Whellers career high is 21.

Kuelmin got 57 points last season Wheeler's Career high is 45.

they are both 24 Kuelmin has done more in as much time and maybe even slightly faster then Wheeler.

Don't get me wrong I like Wheeler and would HAPPILY add his 6"5 frame and his 20 goal scoring abilty to my 3rd line with Armstrong but suggesting Kuelmin goes tyhe other way is nuts

5th, and it's likely Lupul would get more points than him during a full season. That would make him the 5th most scoring winger.

Leafs really don't need another 2nd line winger, they already have four similar or better top six wingers that work on their team.

He's 6'5 and from the US, how the **** did Burke not get a chubb after hearing he was available?
Personally, I think he's more inclined to win the Lady Byng than the Rocket Richard and to that effect, he's a 6'5" pu$$y rather than a tank. Also both Versteeg and Kaberle generated greater offensive production that him, so he's now the only the 7th highest scorer if he was on the Leafs last season. Not a player I'd want on my team.

No need for him on the Leafs and to move Kulemin would be not be a good move.

Leafs don't need Wheeler, they have enough wingers, they need a centre.

Kule for Wheeler

If and only if we had trouble resigning MacArthur I would trade him for Wheeler.
Other than that even if Wheeler was available cheap there is no room for him on our roster. He wouldn't fit in our top 6 and would likely want too much money for the 3rd line.

btw yes I know the Thrasher org walked away from MacA because they didn't want them but... Not only do I believe Clarke proved them wrong with his play last season but since then the org's city, management and half the players have changed. It would be a different situation.

The only reason why the request is for Kulemin is because as of this writing our second line RW is Anthony Stewart. Wheeler is the only bright spot on the right flank and it's going to take a lot to pry him away simply because that's a position of need.

Hahaha, you know what, there was at times last year watching him play against the Leafs I really wanted him back, I always liked him, but it is time to move on.

No Antropov and no Wheeler. I wouldn't have minded a deal for Peverly though.

Understandable but if you wanted Kule in a trade for Wheeler you would have to add heavily. He is our best all around forward and makes less than 2.5m a year.
Other than maybe Schenn he is the biggest fan fav we have.

Yeah, that's fair. And pretty much the reason why a deal involving Kulemin is a no go to begin with. Personally, I like him more than some of the other Atlantapeg fans do, I'd offer the 7th overall, Bogosian and a prospect for him, but it's probably going to be a "one step forward 2 steps back" type of deal at that point, and the Leafs obv aren't interested in moving him.

Wheeler is in no way shape or form ANYWHERE CLOSE to worth Kuelmin I don' care that he's your top RW that doesnt make him CLOSE to worth Kuelmin

Wow. That offer would be more than fair, probably a huge overpayment, almost impossible to turn down but I still would probably say no.

Pretty much, right?

Like I said, I'd love to have Kulemin, but he's pretty much untouchable right now.

You must like him as much as we do. At that price you might be able to pry him free but the sky is the only limit for Kulemin he could break out into a star he has all the tools and the work ethic

Id trade Mac for him. A second line of Kule-Grabo-Wheels would be pretty nice. A huge body to go along with two of our faster guys. It would be allot more intimidating than Mac, and i dont think the offence would go down much. Also, hes a beast on the Pk from what I have seen from him this year.
The guy who said no to the 7, bogo + for Kule... you need glasses. Thats a great deal for T.O and burke would take it as fast as he did any other deal. I think hed even do the 7th, Bogo + a prospect for Kule and a second.
SO, Mac for a signed Wheels?

did you not say "well this is a value thread" so yes it was indeed the point

I said "perhaps a second," then added the caveat that it would be a waste of resources because Wheeler does not replace what Kulemin gives them and the 1st line centre you might get for a guy like Kulemin+ would not give the Leafs the full step forward they need, it would be a lateral move at best

bang your head on that
