I really wasn't pleased with giving up the 40th pick just to move up 2 spots and grab Wilson. My thinking was there were 3 really good prospects with us only 2 picks away. Poile obviously wanted Wilson bad but should've stayed the course and thought we're still going to get a really good player no matter who falls to us at 9th. I thought a 2nd round pick was too much at worst we'd got Cody Hodgson which some say is NHL ready or Joshua Bailey which is a smaller version of Wilson with more offensive skill. Thank being said I really wanted Mikkel Boedker or Wilson so overall I'm happy with our 1st selection. I really was suprised with Pickard but after I researched the guy it's a solid pick, although I really wanted Mattias Tedenby at 18. Small guy that would be our next Sully, comparible to St. Louis. Can't wait to see if Wilson can get some time up in the bigs next season. GO PREDS!!
