I am not so much questioning his heart, desire, effort, etc, but his attention to the little things trotz demands. I don't care who he plays with, but until he plays a better two way game he will have limited minutes and be protected by defensivley responsible guys like ward and smithson. trotz is 100% right with what he is saying.
Here is the play. Legwand carrying the puck over the blue line, hits 33 with a pass waist high on 33 backhand. 33 takes a hit, wins the battle and plays down to Legwand while 33 stays up high. Legwand loses his battle and the Flames come out with the puck. Still two Preds defensemen to deal with, they score. To say Wilson is at fault there, you are grasping.
Do you know how many times in the offensive zone you lose the puck and the team comes out with a odd man rush.Pres still had 2 D back in position.
Honestly, think of how many times this happens in a game.
