Good signing by the jets. Even though Wellwood is a floater and not a play off player, with this years free agency I was expect around 2 mil for his services.


Wellwood stepped up his game in a huge way for us come playoff time. There were games where he was our best forward on the ice, working hard every shift and scoring some important goals. I remember one beauty where he stole the puck on a short pass from the defenders deep in their zone and undressed the goalie before anybody realized what had happened.

He may not have been the best regular season player in terms of work ethic, but the guy battled come playoff time. He absolutely does not deserve the rap he gets as a result of one bad off-season, the guy deserves to play in the NHL.

When he was with San Jose he was also one of their best in the playoffs, he was moved up from the third line to Thornton's line because he was their best player along with Clowe game in and game out.
