Wheeler Headed To Arbitration

from James Murphy of ESPN Boston,

The Bruins and restricted free agent Blake Wheeler have apparently reached an impasse in contract negotiations and it appears that the matter will have to be solved in the winger’s scheduled arbitration hearing tomorrow in Toronto.

Wheeler’s agent Matt Keator, e-mailing from Toronto on Monday morning, told ESPNBoston.com that Wheeler will be meeting him there later in the day to prepare for a hearing.

“I am in Toronto and Blake is flying in today,” Keator said. “I am anticipating arbitration tomorrow.”


Do remember, teams will be waiting to see how some of the arbitrations go. Teams may just walk away, allowing the player to become an unrestricted free agent. 

So if you are expecting some trades this week they may not happen.  I feel teams will still be quiet until the arbitration hearings are completed.
