From his previous contract experience , one gets the impression he likes to make his decisions based on his own values only. Nothing wrong with that, but kind of made one believe he may not want to be here and if he didn't he would faciliatate that happening.
Will be eligible for UFA in three years, wanted a two year contract to give both sides a chance to get to know each other and be a bridge to a longer term contract.
Confortable with Claude Noel, Chevy and Zinger.
No hesitation to sign in Winnipeg, wants to be in a "hockey environment."
Very professional ownership in management.
It's fantastic to hear those types of comments. Hopefully puts to bed any suggestion that Wheeler didn't want to come to Winnipeg and sends a message to other players that Winnipeg is a destination for players who are serious about their game.
