I don't think Wellwood is the only 'vet' that may be invited to camp if some of the 'whispers' I'm hearing are any indication.
Any specifics?

The only reason I'm skeptical about the capspace is that Havlat has been skating and showing up in scrimmages this summer. I know that was reported by his agent and should be taken with a grain of salt but it does seem to indicate that he will not be out nearly as long as expected.
