Trotz open to Wilson starting season in Nashville

Quote:
"We're just going to see how it goes,'' Trotz said. "We've seen him in the rookie games and in the first part of camp and he's played quite well. So we'll see where his conditioning is and how his skating is. If it's fine, I'd say there's a good chance he'll be back in the mix right away.

"But if he's fallen off because of the injury, then we'll make that decision. We'll just play it day by day.''

I think it is the right call. Wilson had earned a spot in the lineup with his performance in camp up until his injury and I think the writing was on the wall for Wilson to come back and lay claim to a roster spot when O'Reilly was sent back to Milwaukee to start the year.

Honestly, I think we might see a one or two game conditioning stint in Milwaukee for Wilson, but outside of that, I believe that the Preds want him in the NHL lineup ASAP...
