Oftentimes, no news is good news. That is definitely not the case when you’re an NHL free agent in the off-season. And when you’re a hockey blogger who happens to be a fan of said NHL free agent, no news is excruciating.
I certainly thought we’d be discussing his signing with an NHL club in this August chapter of Wellwood’s World; don’t other NHL teams know he’s a defensive superstar
? Don’t they know he’s a mutant with undisclosed superpowers
? Don’t they know he has 13 points in his last 22 playoff games? Don’t they know his faceoff percentage was 53.8%, good for 18th in the NHL
Wellwood hasn’t let the angst of free agency get him down (he’s likely instead pondering the meaning of free agency in a world that seems intent on defining humanity by limiting real, meaningful choices and instead providing the illusion of choice) and indeed seems to be developing a marked sense of grandeur:
“Obviously, Europe has been after me for a long time and I haven’t wanted to go there yet.”
That’s the spirit of individualism! All of Europe has been after Kyle, but he has made his own choice to use his talents as he sees fit! Who is John Galt? It seems that he is, after all, Kyle Wellwood!
Wait, he’s just talking about the European hockey leagues? Well nevermind then. Here’s a picture of a Kyle Wellwood Mii my wife and I made.
