That really only leaves one spot for Wellwood (and Shannon I suppose) to take and that's the 2nd(or 1a/b) centre spot. If Gillis is going to go out and sign a skilled centre who can also fill that position what is claiming Wellwood going to accomplish?
I'm worried this is their current solution
I figure they plan on using him as the spare forward/PP specialist unless he impresses in camp.
