I thought that would be obvious .. I guess I was wrong ..

and BTW do you always compare the same things or can we move on to other things once in a while ..

Lets not Forget that Spezza is an NHL regular, and high draft pick that is playing in the AHL only because of the Lockout and Welly is neither .. Spezza is expected to be doing what he is .. not necessarily Welly and considering the Spezza is the only player younger then Wellwood then I can also conclude that he is doing pretty well .. and considering that Binghamton is better offensively as in Goals for than St. Johns it might surprize you that Spezza is a +6 and our little guy is a + 14 ..

Perhaps I struck a nerve by comparing our little highlight reel player to your NHL Super Star and the results are similar in fact before tonights game they both had the same .. GOALS WISE ..

All I said is that the two players have similar goals ... Upon further evaluation .. there are 8 players in fact currently in the AHL that have more goals then Spezza and 9 more then Welly ..

Or do have a problem with that as well and want to tell me about points again .. ???
I've just been wondering for a while what you would say about the points thing so I figured I might as well bring it up now. (I remeber you comparing them and asking if it was possible that one could do as well as the other in the NHL considering similar production) I could'nt really say anything when Spezza was stagnating and their numbers were really similar but now that he's (that is Jason is) back to normal I was wondering what you would say.

I was dissapointed in Wellwood in the first but in the last 2 periods he did what I expected him to. I know you guys dont really like to hear this but he reminds me of Ribeiro (kind of invisible everywhere else than the offensive zone where he's crasy) I mean that as a compliment. He looks/is much bigger than ribs though (5'9 190 > "6'1" 175 IMO) if I had the choice between two undersided guys i'd take the stocky one. He tried to pull a move on Volchenkov in the third that would have been amazing had he made it. Seemed to be trying to deke too much at times.
