That's playing with Mats Sundin, you should expect something around the Kyle Wellwood I saw playing in Vancouver. This is a low risk move but don't expect him to tear it up or anything. He's been given a lot of second chances in the big leagues, and hasn't ever responded by breaking out beyond being a reliable, if uninspired 3rd liner.

That said, he's great in the shootout, can work the puck excellently around the net when he puts his mind to it and actually really turned it on during playoffs in his last season with the Canucks.
