There's a lot more to hockey than simply talent, and that's where Wolski's deficient.
Wolski was also brought back before we realized Anisimov could play on the top line LW. The only top 6 LW that we knew we had during the summer was Dubinsky. Since that time, Anisimov has cemented a spot on Stepan and Gaborik's flank, and while Dubinsky struggled, Hagelin emerged as a legitimate NHL LWer.
That's not to suggest Wolski is worthless, but there is no reason to insert him into a lineup that is working so well. I'd keep him on the sidelines until someone or the team struggles or an injury occurs.
