I agree, its been Kaner and Olli making things happen. I wouldn't mind seeing Burmi or Scheif take a shift on the second line.

You think Wellwood is playing well then?

There's a much better effort by the team in this game versus last.

Ladd/Little/Wheeler line can't create any offense to save their lives this game

He's had some good crisp passes and he's creative. He opens up room for Kane and Jokinen.

Wellwood has fed them some of the best chances.

It was Welly that almost gave Jokinen the PP goal with the backhand pass.

Not sure if it was discussed but it looks like Stu and Olli permanently have the 'A's

I'd honestly rather move Wheeler around right now. I'm really not liking his play.

He's created a couple of chances, including that beauty feed to Jokinen that Jokinen just missed

Interesting, the guy that has yet to make himself known physically this year that has a rep for it.... Wish he would just light someone up.

Bogo TRULY can't come back soon enough. Hainsey might make Bogo better, but the reverse is true as well, and the sooner that Stuart is on the 3rd pairing, the better: he's definitely playing over his head as a 4th.

Yes it was. (Though I question if he knew where Olli was when he threw a blind spinning backhand towards the side of the net)
Its not that he's invisible, I just think another player can contribute more.
I'm not trying to knock Welly.

Me neither, and I'm probably one of the bigger Wheeler guys around here.

Last year when he started slow he still had all the jump in the world and was buzzing around making things happen. Right now he's pretty much invisible.

IMO he isn't the answer , and will be surprised to see the production some people are expecting.

I really don't think he's that smart of a player. Seems to make so many questionable passes.
