Unless he can deliver a heavy check he is useless. Not a single Hab will fight him. I wish Carcillo was healthy.

Count me in with those that are curious as to who he will replace in the lineup. And if he doesn't replace anyone, why call him up just to be a scratch?

Zherdev had great chemistry with both Carter and Giroux during preseason (I know it's been awhile but it's true).

Then Again if Wellwood is playing where do you put him? Nodl and Richards really seem to be benefiting from playing with each other. Richards had struggled this season before being paired with Nodl and has exploded since (yes partly coincidence but not all) and Nodl has struggled his entire young NHL career until now. Then you have JVR who played really well with those two against the Caps. I'm not saying JVR turned a corned, but Lavi has a perfect chance to show him that if he plays the way he did Sat, he'll be rewarded.

I'd go with:

Nodl Richards JVR
Hartnell Briere Leino
Zherdev/Wellwood Giroux Carter
Shelly Betts Powe

It'll be hard to not put Wellwood back on Richard's line.
I agree totally, it's certainly worth a try. I don't think Powe brings anything to that line.

Agree 100%, too many times he gets caught looking for the home run outlet pass. Also noticed him float through the middle the other night like it was a beer league game as a cap player got control of the puck and put it past Boosh. He brings a lot of offensive flair, but not the stability that Laviolette is looking for on defense.

I'm alright with that.

Nodl - Richards - Wellwood
Hartnell - Briere - Leino
JVR - Giroux - Carter
Shelley - Betts - Powe

I'd rather have Carter at left wing, or Centre for his faceoffs. Zherdev doesn't deserve to be benched, especially after his showing against Tampa. I'd rather even have him on the 4th line over Shelley.

Wellwood looks like he has a true 3rd line winger type of potential. Having Nodl and wellwood on the cheap to fill those positions could be useful in providing some salary flexibility in the next few years

Zherdev is all smoke and mirrors.....the guy doesn't want to play within the system and Laviolette doesn't take too well to that. Zherdev will eventually be moved IMO since he is not doing a very good job of working within the system. Creative type players like him that like to do their own thing need to be in a different environment and under a different coach. I don't think he'll "get it" here especially since he's already crossed his coach by whining to the GM...

As much as I dislike Z's eccentric ways, he does score goals. And he would score more if he wasn't buried on the 3rd and 4th lines and was given more minutes. This day in age you need scorers, they are invaluable. Benching Z in favor of Wellwood is not in the teams' best interest imo.

I know just busting balls. Unless it is an injury they are not telling a rather odd call up or maybe they have had it with Zherdev. Why waste him on the 4th line if your not going to play him in the top 9 is what they may be thinking.

Who cares? Shelley is getting 2 goals and a fight tonight and the Flyers will win.

Zherdev isn't the only candidate to be benched...JVR anyone. And of course there is always the possibility they could sit Shelley for a couple games.

While true in theory, based on the coachs past benching it will be an easy target playe. JVR or Zherdev. Shelley has mad eplenty of mistakes and continues to play. no reaosn imo to think he iwll sit now.

JVR will not be benched. As Lavi said, his play warranted a first line spot, so why would he be benched after one of his best games? Zherdev had a pretty mediocre game in Washington, but since he was scratched earlier in the season I thought he's played well, so hopefully he isn't out of the lineup again. Shelly should be the one to sit down, he brings nothing. The entire "heavyweight" viewpoint in hockey is prehistoric and takes away from the game. I want to watch actual hockey players, not boxers on skates, boxing is a dead sport.

Yep I think everyone in their right frame of mind knows that Shelley should not even be in the league based on skill but unfortunately this is the NHL and guys like him are 'apparently' needed in the lineup...

It appears as if Wellwood is the scratch.

That's a bizarre move...

I wonder if someone was knicked up or ill, leading to Wellwood being called up as a precaution.

Theres some confilcting reports.

Tim says Wellwood isnt playing (based off of what someone told him), DNFlyers said he is, and Wellwood himself said he is.

That's weird.

EDIT:

Frank Seravelli (DNFlyers) is saying Wellwood's on the 4th line tonight.

I can't imagine them calling him up just to scratch him unless there is something else going on (i.e. a trade or injury or something like that). Then again, it could just be that his loan time ran out. IIRC he was loaned, and not sent down. Don't know all the rules but that could just be the case. Anyone know anything about that?
