Wellwood is a winger though. I think Jokinen was signed for this reason more than Welly. Kyle was signed because he is hockey's version of a utility player in baseball who can slot in nearly anywhere and be serviceable. Right now our depth is fairly thin up front at least until Mittens comes back

edit: apparently Welly is a Centre after all. Shows how much I know
