Colin Wilson
 
Hey Preds board! I just wanted to ask a quick question. Could you tell me about Colin Wilson? He is consistently putting up 35 points every year but what kind of game does he play? Is he a defensive forward or?

Thanks!

He is a true PWF in my opinion. In spurts last year, he looked like a true top line guy, but at other times, he looked like a kid among man. Disappeared for long stretches.

I wouldn't call him a defensive forward, but anyone under Trotz is going to have to be strong defensively. I would say he is two way with a slant towards offense. Given line-mates and ice time, he could really start racking up some points, but Trotz hates the kid for some reason.

He's an offensive power forward with defensive lapses who, in my opinion, has a high ceiling (think Erat-esque point totals [50-60 a year] but with more goal tallies than assists). If you're in a keeper fantasy league, he would be a great pickup for the future. I think he's a permanent top 6 forward in ~2 years on the Preds, assuming he remains here.

Disclaimer: I am high on Wilson; some here are not

He's a player that would likely thrive in another system, but won't adapt to what Trotz wants.

Hence, always in the doghouse of Trotz's

The kids got skill. Especially in the stick handling department. These types of players need a bit of a leash in order to maximize their potential. Turnovers will be a part of their game occasionally. It's something that has not sat well with Trotz. :(

Spot on in terms of your player analysis.

Wilson has no defensive game to speak of, so I'd stop short of that description.

kid has good offensive instincts, but until he buys in defensivly, which he started to do before getting too cute, he will be a 35-40 point guy bc of icetime.

cant say he hates it though, as he did just sign an extension

Just not true at all

...and he just joined the list of players in this lockout to open mouth and insert foot.

Of course Bettman was putting on a show, same thing that Fehr did just minutes before.

And yet another player who references "Record Revenue" without distinguishing Revenue from Profits. What are they doing with it Colin? They're paying 57% of it to YOU in salary, as well as paying for your health care, travel, lodging and food...

Yup. I just don't understand where the players feel it's acceptable to insult Bettman. I get that they may feel they're being screwed, but I just can't fathom displaying publicly that amount of comfort.

I know Bettman's an easy target, but he's still "the boss" so to speak. I was glad that I hadn't seen much from the Predators players overall, but this one is dissapointing.

Wilson was playing defence! Lets face it, small town Winnipeg is looking for any story they can to keep "any" form of hockey news going. I don't think there is anything in this article that most players aren't thinking or saying. Unfortunate "header" on the article.....in true Sun style!
The problem lies with both the players and the owners not wanting to give too much in my opinion. As far as revenues, it is teams like Philly making insane offers (good for Weber and Suter) that gobble up tons of teams profits.
