As I said, personally I'm not betting on Kyle Wellwood as a future top 6 forward in the league, but I'm not writing him off just yet. He's only 21 years old and still has time to develop and possibly become a NHL player.

To say that writing him off is wrong isn't homerism. The guy obviously has talent and may eventually manage to overcome his shortcomings and play at a higher level than the AHL. Anything more than a 3rd line regular is bonus, IMO.

This guy is listed at 5-10, 190lbs on the Baby Leafs website and 5-11, 190lbs on another site. He's not that small. I mean even if he's truly 5'9'', at close to 200lbs he's still pretty solid.

As long as he keeps getting stronger and works on his skating, as his resume suggests, he could be an important NHL player pretty soon.
