Canes are very high on Welsh, however, and signed him to quite a large bonus for an undrafted player. They project him as a third line center, and I only included him because I feel like they need the third line help now rather than later. Welsh and a 2nd round pick, IMO, is worth a late first round pick, and I feel like 2 seasons of Jokinen and a 1st for an unsigned O'Reilly is accurate value.
