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.
Sullivan is on a bad team because none of the good teams wanted him. He was made available to all the teams in the league at the trading deadline and only Nashville bit. McCauley was given plenty of chances by Quinn, he failed. Dempsey never came to camp in shape and was made available on waivers to the whole league several times, no one took him.

Smaller players like Reichel and Tucker played for Quinn because they did their jobs unlike those guys. If Wellwood does what he is supposed to do, and he is so far, he can play for Quinn any day.
