Is Blake Wheeler setting a precedent?

From David Staples of the Edmonton Journal:

"This clause has huge implications for the Oilers in that three of their most cherished prospects, defencemen Tayler Chorney and Jeff Petry and forward Riley Nash are all U.S. college players. All could decide to turn pro, wait 30 days, then become unrestricted free agents."

Here is the entire entry from Cult of Hockey.

David Staples always writes about interesting hockey situations and this is no exception. With Blake Wheeler's recent decision to not sign with the Coyotes and instead opt for UFA status, Staples wonders whether some of the Oilers' youngsters might do the same. While this is purely speculation, the entry is well-written and gets you thinking.

Ballhype: hype it up!
