Wellwood doesn't have a hard shot by any means, but he's accurate when he's in close to the goaltender. The biggest reason for Wellwood's high shooting percentage is his lack of shooting. He has only taken 67 shots this year despite playing a regular shift and logging significant powerplay time. In contrast, most of the other players in the NHL's top ten for shooting percentage have taken around 120+ shots. It wouldn't take much for Pittsburgh to acquire him. A 4th round draft pick would probably suffice. Anything less than that and I'm not sure the Canucks would be interested in moving him.
