I read somewhere that Wilson might give us a little scoring punch instead of picking up a rental at the trade deadline.
He is a good forechecker. He gets deep in the zone with speed and tries to get his stick on the puck. In the neutral zone he has started throwing some Scott Stevens-like hits. He didn't do that when he was first sent down to Milwaukee.
