With Marco Sturm and Marc Savard on the mend, Boston will need to find cap room to accommodate their salaries (currently LTI exempt). Michael Ryder and Blake Wheeler are mooted as two candidates to be moved. Ryder's $4M hit and Boston's inability to take dollars back limits his trade appeal to only a few teams, but Wheeler's $2.2M (RFA after this season) and youth/potential might make him an attractive commodity.
I'm bullish on Wheeler, who, after a very solid rookie season with quality linemates, took a step back last year. He's a winger with size, skill, upside, and a fairly reasonable price tag. Too bad the Penguins' cap situation and Wheeler's upcoming RFA status make this post more or less a pointless waste of bandwidth... or something like that.
