Wellwood will never make it to the NHL. He's too slow, too small and not good enough for the NHL style of game. Secondly you think Quinn had nothing against small players? He traded away Sullivan(70 and 80 point seasons with a bad team like Chicago) and Dempsey(regular ice time with his new team) for a box of Corn Flakes. Where's Alyn McCauley now(5'9")? Why does Antropov get regular ice time even though he played 18 bad games in a row(6'4")? Can you make the correlation? Wellwood has 0.1% chance of playing in the NHL and with Quin as his coach his chances are now a 0.0% chance.

Quinn was the one who signed him, if he didn't see a chance of Wellwood making it, why would he?
