Look what he's done in the middle of the ice. He's been a productive forward that doesn't get scored against very often. I don't know if there was a top 9 player in the NHL on for less goals against per minute than Wellwood during his tenure in Vancouver. Teams just couldn't score when he was on the ice.
Wellwood usually wins around 55% of his draws - Schroeder isn't even at 45%. That faceoff ability alone is a huge advantage to have in the lineup.
Hmmm kinda like Schroeder playing on the FOURTH LINE with Sestito and Weise, on a poor offensive team? The Jets and Canucks have scored the exact same amount of goals this season, so as bad offensively as the Jets are, so are we.
Please have mercy on us Canucks fans! Fire Benning! Fire Linden! Fire Weisbrod! #Bexit #Lexit #Wexit
