    Default Someone needs to explain something to me.....

    But How THE **** did Blake Wheeler get a $5.6M per year contract out of the ****ing idiots in Winnipeg?

    Does he have home movies of Kevin Cheveldayoff wearing a pink tutu and doing naughty things with farm animals or kids or something?

    There are some bad contracts out there, but that one may be the worst. He's cracked 20 goals ONCE in his career, and that was back when he was a Bruin.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    but that was his first season. 19 goals in 48 games last year, but I see you. He's still overpaid.

    Look at Doughty's numbers after his second season lol, but we know better.

    With Jets he has 157 games, 42g, 61a and 103p. He has 0,27 goals per game and 0,66 points per game. He's also big (though softer than you'd want). His average per season is 22 goals with the Jets (a fair sample size), actually, and he was on pace for 32 last year.

    Yes, he's overpaid. But not blatantly and considering it's a good term (6 years, which will take him to 33yo), it's not horrible. Besides, it's the Jets. They have to overpay a bit.

    Even though I may not be aware of weaknesses in his game, all in all, from formal NHL business standpoint and with using only numbers and taking contract length and Jets' current stature into account, his agent didn't bend the Jets over all that much IMO.

    But personally, I wouldn't allow him to even sniff that kind of money.
