Jets Sign Wellwood

Says "renhockey" on Twitter. He's also listed on the Jet's roster.

I don't mind this move, should provide good third line depth and has the ability to fill in if there are injuries in the top 6.

We need a game changer. And Kyle Wellwood is not a game changer.



Diddy says so.

I like the term, I like the money, I like the deal. Another player worth taking a flyer on. I like how TNSE isn't committing too much to these deals but are finding way to upgrade our team.

And start the Buff+Wellwood fat jokes...

Haha. First decent weight related joke I've heard since they became a dime a dozen in these parts.

Nicely done.

Never been a fan of Wellwood, but at $700,000 for one year there's very little downside in that.

Positive is that he's an upgrade on Maxwell and Machacek.

Negative is that I was rooting for Maxwell and Machacek to make the team

Wellwood has been taken off the Jets roster.

So did he sign with us or not?

Edit: Ken Wiebe of the Sun is saying an "NHL source" has confirmed Wellwood signed with us.

Well done, both of you.

I remember Shark fans liking him for the price so I'd say he's probably worthy of a shot.

I am not a fan of Wellwood, but, at least the money and term are acceptable.

I don't know about Wellwood but Maxwell is a fairly smart hockey player and I see him as someone who can make a living in the NHL. We'll see how it all works out.

Atleast you know what you're getting with the guy. He was brutal in the regular season but was a warrior in the playoffs for the Canucks a few years back. Nice guy too.

I think the "confirmed with link" monicker given to this thread's title shouldn't be there. Since when is someone's tweet confirmation of something. Should be from a reliable source before it's confirmed.

Obviously there is some confusion here as to who really signed him. However, if you look up Kyle Wellwood on NHL.com, they have him with the Jets.

I'm also not the biggest Wellwood fan but you really can't argue with the term and money. He'll probably center the third line.

edit:that is if we actually signed him.

He was on the Jets roster, which is why it was confirmed with link. Perhaps NOW it should be removed.

On a lighter note, Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun tweets...

This is what Kyle Wellwood's career has come to: The Winnipeg Jets sign him and are too embarrassed to announce it.
