What Did You Miss Tuesday?

--Blake Wheeler isn't going anywhere anytime soon.  After a career-high 91 point season, the Winnipeg Jets have signed their captain to a 5 year, 41.25 million dollar contract. 

--Jordan Eberle is going into his last season with the New York Islanders.  The former Pat says he has not started talks on a contract extension with the team yet. Making $6 million against the salary cap, Eberle has the second-highest AAV of any winger set to become a UFA next summer, behind only Mark Stone who signed a one-year $7.35-million deal with Ottawa ahead of their salary arbitration hearing.

--A brawl involving several players broke out in the Seattle Mariners‘ clubhouse Tuesday night several hours before a game at Safeco Field. Shortstop Jean Segura, catcher Mike Zunino and other players were involved in the skirmish. Moments after centre fielder Dee Gordon politely asked reporters to leave the locker room, the double doors burst open with players shoving and shouting.

--The Calgary Stampeders did not give an update on the status of receiver Kamar Jorden Tuesday. He suffered a lower-body injury in the Stamps 23-20 win over Edmonton on Monday. He got rolled over on a block late in the second quarter and limped off the field. He did not play after that.

--Oakland City Council intends to file an antitrust lawsuit against the Raiders and the NFL over the franchise's impending move to Las Vegas, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The lawsuit is expected to be filed before the Raiders' season opener Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. It will seek around $500 million in damages.If it's filed, the Raiders have indicated to the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum that they will withdraw from negotiations about extending their lease, leaving them without a home until they're ready to move to Vegas.

Solid signing by Winnipeg. At least they have a hockey team that is good.

Let's be honest. Eberle has been declining in production and value. What is he worth now? Certainly not 6 mill a year. 3-5 to 4-5?
