I think having Wheeler and Wellwood on the right side would give us a real unique offense where the play is set up from the right side (kind of like a poor man's St. Louis and Stamkos, but on two lines). Might be tricky to defend against for teams with shutdown centers.
Excellent points. You may be spot on. All in all, I just want to see our top 6-9 producing goals on a consistent enough basis that it gives the team the chance to win each night. Whether it be Wellwood or Kostitsyn, or whoever, I hope we can get some good, solid production out of these guys.

Does anyone know what Kostitsyn's playmaking game is like? any good?
