He's not putting up the points, but the vibe from a lot of the fans is he's the most improved Jets player from last season so far. I don't know whether to agree or not because Burmi's always played this good.
The game yesterday was his best this season and he didn't even get on the scoresheet. He rarely does right now, but he is doing all the right things off the scoresheet. Will the production come in time? I can only hope so. However, I'll tell you he possess the skill to put up goals and points. He just has to do it and believe in himself. A lot will depend on what line he's playing with.
I've never been a Wellwood fan, even now. He has skill, but his work ethic is horrible. He's out of shape, obviously, and it is very visible on the ice. He might be slower than Nik Antropov.
Okay okay enough bashing.
Wellwood was really good for us last year. Early in this season he was an off-and-on healthy scratch, but with Scheifele back in Barrie, there's more room for him now. He just has to get into a groove. Noel has been shuffling lines every other shift it seems. I think (not sure because Noel is the line shuffling master) that he's on the Toronto line (Welly, Poni, Antropov). He did contribute on the GWG yesterday so maybe that will jump start his game.
