I am pretty worried about that too. I have been for a while. I wouldn't mind moving wilson for the right player. Everyone knows my feelings on Ellis but I am actually more concerned about wilson reaching his potential here (something I really question) and his trade value. If we could package wilson with something for a legit top 3 forward (of any position) I would do it in a heartbeat.

I don't want another scotty hartnell situation where a blooming powerforward is in Trotz's penalty box all year. The fact that Wilson was pretty much benched all playoffs says something about his attitude or at the very least Trotz's attitude toward Wilson. Either way it spells trouble and a high possibility of a fine asset squandered... which is something the Preds can't afford.
