Wellman isn't scoring, but he isn't the only one. Over the last 7 games, of which we've won 5, we've scored an average of 2 goals per game. That should be an indication of how well our D and G have been over that stretch, but also, how lackluster our forwards have been.

That said, Wellman is different than Gillies or Shep. He's 23 and despite his lack of statistics (He's been robbed a few times), he's shown that he can play at this level ie... he doesn't look lost. He may not be physical, but he's pesky and he's got a nose for the puck.

I would prefer his development take place in Houston right now, but who has done a better job? The AHL is about development, the NHL is about wins. Right now the NHL team is winning, and Wellman is factoring into those wins.
