Despite rumors that he was heading overseas, Kyle Wellwood is coming back to Winnipeg. He got a big raise too. Now he is making Randy Jones money.
Jets sign Wellwood. 1 year, $1.6 mil.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) July 13, 2012
I'm personally very excited about the signing. Despite his salary more than doubling he is still a great value signing on a cheap one year deal, so there is no risk. Plus the Jets now have nine very legitimate scoring forwards. Three scoring lines is no longer a joke. What do you guys think of the signing?
