Vancouver: When first acquired he was a decent 3rd line center. Solid faceoffs and a amazing playoff performance. The next year he was a healthy scratch for most of the season. He has holes defensively and Vancouver decided to fill the gap with a defensive minded third liner like Malhotra.
San Jose: Didn't watch much of his play as a shark, but from what I hear from shark fans he was a pretty good at his role. He entered later in the season only playing 35 games, but he did pot 5 goals and have 8 assists and was a +/- 10. With Sharks loaded with talented and younger centers, Wellwood didn't fall into place with their plans.
Wellwood is a Jet now, but for how long?
-Only a year if he slacks off again he will be scratched or released.
-He will play stellar, prove us wrong (or right)and put up decent numbers earning him a 2 year contract extension.
