This is all based on the assumption that Wellwood makes the team. I don't mean to harsh on the guy, but I really think that people are getting a little too excited about this kid. He has done absolutely nothing except play well in three games against average and below teams. He isn't exactly tearing up the AHL right now, either. It will be great if he turns out to be a good player and makes the team next season, but be realistic. He has shown some promise, but he just hasn't been around done anything for a long enough period of time to bank on him helping out this year or even next. If he has a good camp next season then great, stick him on the team. But at this point we can't be counting on him as a cheap cap hit to make room for other players. Just as a reference point, guys like Kadri, Josefsen, Hodgson, and other stud prospects can't crack a bad lineup, well Hodgson has some competition in Van but the Devs and Leafs suck (I know just being a highly touted prospect doesn't mean anything really, but I am just saying. If I could have one of them instead of Wellwood, I'd take them in a heartbeat). Wellwood looks like a solid player but he simply has not done enough to be penciling him anywhere.
