Wellwood was clearly getting buried (when he shouldn't have), and despite his injury like isn't getting another shot here (he should).

The other point is that for every Matt Read there's 20 other guys who don't pan out, and the Flyers have been awful finding shrewd ways to either get value on the guys they get rid of, or getting them in the first place. The Flyers were in on other hot college free agents that have since not panned out elsewhere. You can't say 'Matt Read' and conclude how excellent the organization is in unearthing hidden gems, especially since they're terrible finding them in the draft. They've had 3rd and 4th round picks walk away without even putting on a Phantoms uniform. That can't happen given that they're often the 2nd or 3rd player we're picking in the draft.
