I had a chuckle when the fourth line's ice time went down to ~5 minutes with Sestito back in the lineup after the Welsh-Dalpe-Weise line played 9-10 minutes against Edmonton and Boston.
If Welsh is willing to drop his gloves from time to time, he might have the spot instead of Sestito. I am not saying that Sestito is a great fighter. However, he brings something that the Canucks sorely lack, size and grit.
Welsh has the potential to be a third line center if he could improve his game.
