While I was on my family vacation, I was surprised to see that the Winnipeg Jets resigned former Minnesota Golden Gophers and Boston Bruin forward Blake Wheeler to a 6-year, 33 Million dollar contract. According to Capgeek.com, Wheeler is going to make 5.6 million dollars a year to play for the Jets. Yeah, okay! That seems like a lot of money for a guy that’s scored (93g-139a—232pts) in 372 NHL games, he’s never scored more than (17g-47a—64pts) in 82 game season. Does anyone see a compliance buyout coming in the future?
