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.
Wellwood's skating is just fine.

He doesn't have patience with whining players that won't compete, like Steve Sullivan. It has nothing to with how big they are. He can't get by with a lot of small players in the eastern conference because the games are more physical. The western conference is far better suited to guys like Sullivan and McCauley.
