I think its a great accomplishment for Wellwood to clock that great time in the competition, but keep in mind that it is just a lap around the ice. It says nothing about his agility or balance.

Just playing the devils advocate.

Now is 14.77 by Wellwood compared to NHLers really that much difference ??.

Martin St. Louis .. 14.20 .. Thats 1/2 of a Second slower around a whole Areana then the NHL MVP from last year ..

Is that really too slow ??

I don't think that based on the plays that Wellwood can make that agility and balance are even an issue.

when you're talking a 14-15 second sprint, half a second is quite a bit.

welly says in the paper today that he was just hoping not to finish last. he said it was just luck of the draw that put him in the faster skater contest.

Well at least we know he's humble, eh?

He is a real humble kid ... I remember a similar approach to his 5 goal game .. His teammates gave his great passes, he got lucky on a few and the goalie should have had a couple etc ..

but whether he knows it or not .. He made a statement to his critics .. I hope Leafs management was watching as it made a statement..

When you think about it .. We all know that Salmaleinen and Bouwmeester etc are all great skaters it was not fluke that he was in the event .. That is just Welly being Welly ..

On an unrelated topic, I came up with an idea for a (sort of) new event for the NHL skills competition. It was inspired by Mike Cammalleri's gem of a goal last night.

I think instead of the breakaway relay, they should have a breakaway challenge where the players pull off the best moves they can and then are judged by a panel for the most impressive goal. Sort of like the NBA dunk competition.

I think that would be exciting and it would be a great way for the players to show off some amazing skills.

Actually, I thought I did see him stumble a bit... No matter, Wellwood was plenty fast. As for the clock comment, you're kidding right? somebody said that?

For the guy who said Wellwood would be the #1 centre if the lockout ended.... where does that put Sundin? we'll take him off your hands if you want...
you'd seriously have a rookie as your #1?

His skating isn't as bad as they say.
A re-occurring theme for this young player's career...
