Not a big fan of Wellwood, but I honestly rather have him in the lineup over Knuble just because he doesn't take stupid penalties like Knuble.
Eh, I like Wellwood and think he will be a solid 4th line player in the future. Has some offense and crazy speed who can play the pk. That being said, he hasnt looked too good in the NHL or AHL this season.
As a Noebels fan, would have liked to see him play but it seems their set on him in the AHL for the season.
