Also, he's a 20-year-old, and you feel he'd be ready for a long-term NHL job after just one NHL game?

Not wanting to send him back to Adirondack to deal with Gilbert is one thing, believing he's ready as a 20-year-old for long-term duty is another.

And, as said in that post, if he can keep up that level of play. He looked stellar out there last night. He played a simple game, stayed within himself, and did a LOT of good things.

And, yes, if you're playing someone with Richards, actually looking like you are something of a threat offensively is worth a lot.
Wellwood may be younger, but the kid can skate and showed some offensive skills. I'd give him a few more games before sending him down in place of No-Goal Nodl.
