When I see Willsie I can't help but think of the Avs other "gems" like Matte and Aubin.
I've stated numerous times that I think Willsie is a career-minor leaguer. Of course, it's probably a lot harder to make the Avs then say the Atlanta Thrashers. Willsie was exposed last year and there were no takers....expect him to be exposed again this year. However, I wouldn't be surprised if Hartley asked Don Waddell to pick him up.

It would be good for him to get another shot but I still think he'll end up in the AHL no matter what team picks him up.
