Get to know a Prospect: Eric Wellwood

Yes, I know, I tweeted that today's new post would be about the DGS Staff but it turns out, we decided that an in depth investigation into a Flyers prospect would be in order, see, with the Flyers prospect camp this week, we are getting to see guys who will be the Flyers of the future, and like any "respectable and responsible journalists". We thought it best to, shed some light on Eric Wellwood, specifically, translating an interview he did recently from Wellwoodese into English.

The whole article can be found here:

Eric says: "My game is all speed and shooting, dumping it in the corners and going to get it myself. He is more finesse, more laid-back. I think maybe people are starting to realize that our game doesn't have as much in common as one might think."

Eric means: "I'm not an overweight fat bastard who avoids contact with anything other than a buffet table, oh yeah, and I actually try to put the puck in the net"

What Was Said: Wellwood is relying on his brother for conditioning tips. He has a leg up on his competition as he already knows what challenges lie ahead

What Was Meant: Eric is not making the mistakes that Kyle did, for example Eric does NOT stop at every Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts to compare tastes of frosting. Also, Eric realizes that "deep fried" anything is a bad thing for meals. Eric also knows to stick to a conditioning plan, to avoid ending up fat.

Well, that's all we got for now, here's to hoping Kyle doesn't eat Eric on Christmas....


  1. DGS,

    Nice job with the post! I can't wait to see how you handle more Eric/Kyle comparisons.
