It's because cognitively he 'knows' both of their names. It's just that the name he 'knows' for Wellwood is wrong, but he can spell the wrong name right, if it makes sense. It's like if you thought Britain was Kazahkstan. You wouldn't have any problems spelling "let's go see Big Ben in Kazakhstan", it would just be the wrong identifier for that particular country.

As long as you keep him away from a Mark Stuart caliber "defensemen" anyone would want him (at the right price... just like anyone would want any other top6/4 guy at the right price). His defensive ability is actually highly underrated.

The real problem with him is:
1) he sometimes makes poor decisions pinching
2) a lot of his pinches were covered by players who can't play defence: Stapleton, Glass, Thorburn, and revolving door of AHL players
3) almost all of his '-' plus/minus came from being paired with Stuart... who did the same to Bogosian

Homer rant on:

People can pay too much attention to highlight bloopers because it sticks in your mind better but when you create more offensive opportunities for your team than you do for the other (loosely measured by corsi) and score more than the other team does... who cares. For Byfuglien, check on both for whenever he wasn't with Stuart because 2 of 4 top4 D were injured.

I don't think it's that Stuart is bad per se, just that with injuries to the Jets D last year Stuart was sometimes asked to play above his level.

I think Stuart is a good #5-6 D man. He brings a lot of grit, will drop the mitts, and blocks a tonne of shots.

With injuries to Enstrom, Bogosian, and Buff, Stuart was put into some top 4 minutes at times, and that is not his area of strength.

I'm not sure if that is what garret9 thinks though so I'm not trying to put words in his mouth.
