Anyhow, Wellwood had 47 points for the Jets this past season, and from what I've read his linemates love to have this crafty centerman on there line.
Precisely why Winnipeg will re-sign him. Also, I suspect he likes having a spot there, and his teammates, and he will want to stay there, rather than move to St. Louis. It is cold there, but many (if not most) Canadians would trade a chance to leave the cold for being in a quiet, community-centred small city, with a strong hockey following, and having an almost-guaranteed place on the team. I lived there for more than 1/3 of my life (and still spend a few months a year there. It's really a nice city to dwell in. I don't think The Blues will have an opportunity to pull him away.
