he's been putting up points, can play any role in the top 6, and has enough game to play anywhere on the bottom 6. Can play PP and PK. Wins big face-offs. This guy can't possibly really be underrated anymore among fans. I get that he's not a shiny awesome toy, but he's the kind of player that has filled out teams like Detroit for 2 decades.

Losing him will be noticable in a lot of little ways. If Dubi can find his game, he can make up for a lot of the loss of AA.

If Wellman has some game let's get him up here. I don't see any real reason to have Scott in the line-up with Rupp and Prust both healthy.
