like i said - i think you, and others, are overblowing this acquisition. i think he's being brought here with the intention of replacing matsumoto in SA and to add depth. if he surprises and earns a roster spot, awesome, but i wouldn't count on it.
If Tallon meant to say he can be a top line player for the AHL team, he would have said that.

How am I overblowing this acquisition? I'm saying it's likely Wellman will be an AHLer, which is the same as what you're saying. Does he have a chance to make the Panthers? Yes, he does. It's foolish to think otherwise. If Wellman makes the team, then Howden and/or Santorelli will go down to the Rampage. So they will be getting help either way.
