yes, but the question is will Quinn have the patience to see him develop in the Leafs lineup... he hasn't in the past with smaller players.

When (not if IMO) Wellwood comes up, will he make an immediate impact? and if he doesn't, will Quinn give him chances to develop his game? History with Quinn shows he doesn't have a lot of patience with smaller players, especially those who can't skate well either.
