no. the kid will most likely earn a spot in camp next season, but he won't replace JVR.
I still perfer Gustafsson over Lilja think Gustafsson was starting to play better IMO
JVR does a lot more for the offense than Wellwood does. Wellwood's a nice fourth line player right now, but I wouldn't want him filling Reemer's skates for a full season.
People are simply comparing how the two players are performing up to expectations rather than comparing their level of play.
Looking at what the Penguins did and have done in their games before and after Sunday's game only makes the win that much more impressive.
That would have been one hell of a deflection.
Wellwood from red line to red line. :clap:
Did we get a high sticking penalty after the whistle or did that shot not count...?
so does everybody think we will be playing the Pens in the 1st round?
JVR has much more offensive ability.
it's not a knock against wellwood, but just because JVR has had an injury-riddled season doesn't give you the right to replace him all together with someone else just because he's looked good in 14 games.
I think we need to give him some time before labeling him a top-six forward and better than JVR.
Don't get me wrong, I love the kid. People are just way too down on JVR. I guess with how many games he's missed this year it's easy to forget how he can single-handedly take over a game, even if he doesn't get his name on the score sheet.
Jagr's looked pretty bad ever since taking that hit from Letang.
