Remember when A.Nödl won the fasted skater exhibition amongst all Flyers a couple of years ago? And where exactly did this skill take him - onto the waiver list
He didn't really know ho to use his speed in games and convert.

Speed is not enough to make an impression in this league. Wellwood is responsible defensively and may also get a chance at killing penalties which is a good start. His size is what is holding him back but if he was bigger he probably wouldn't be as fast.. so, I don't know if he can be an NHL regular to be honest.
