First...No one wants a player that can put up 80 points playing with AHL line-mates? Other teams didn't take him because "the brains" of NHL teams still live in caveman days where size means nearly everything...that's a devate for another day. McCauley wan never really given a fair chance...if he made 1 mistake he was benched or sat out. Tucker's on the team because he's insane and tries to play like a tough guy.

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.
