if he is better than the third line centre on our competitor's then i applaud this move....if he is worse, but cheaper, then i am critical.

nobody is saying we should overpay...im saying we should be hoping for the best players possible regardless of salary.
You can't just compare our 3rd line centre with another team's 3rd line centre. You have to look at what we have available on our roster NOW. Is he a better option than anyone we have for that spot? Players don't just grow on trees, you have to aquire them. Wellwood might have been the best option for us right now.
