That said, Wellwood and Nodl are two very different players. Nodl is a lot bigger and stronger - he's more capable of hitting on the forecheck and playing the PK.
Wellwood is small and fast. He will be even better when he fills out a bit, but, like Homer said, Wellwood and Rinaldo are going to play for the Flyers, it's just a matter of when....
For what the Flyers need, I would still send Wellwood down for seasoning and let Nodl play when he's healthy.
Well, the reality is that neither of them should be in our lineup when we're fully functional and healthy right now.
