Everything Gillis has done so far makes perfect sense.

This ... I don't understand if it's a one-way deal. Wellwood would pretty clearly be the backup-plan #2 center if Sundin doesn't sign. Kesler-Johnson are pretty carved in stone as the #3 and #4 centers.

Until we see conclusive proof, though, it might still be a two-way deal.

The most conceivable theory is that he's a cheaper alternative to Pyatt or Pettinger. But then those guys bring size/grit to our bottom-6 while Krog plays a different position and is a small, skilled playmaker.

I do wonder about whether Pettinger will be on the opening-day roster. The Tony Gallagher article where he was referred to as a 'useless plug' or something along those lines could be pretty telling given the Gillis-Gallagher relationship.
