I wasn't really impressed by any of the other players games last night. Us fans sure did miss out on a lot of high end talent not playing last night (Yakupov, Galchenyuk, Reilly, Ceci, Maatta, Koekkoek, Subban, etc).
I forgot about Wilson, I did see him lay out a nice hit in the 1st. He defiantly looked bigger than most guys out there to me. If he developed even a little bit of an offensive game he could be a beast. Is anyone comparing him to a guy like Lucic?

Wilson's draft year (so far)
GP G A Pts PIM +/-
41 7 15 22 122 18

Lucic's draft year

GP G A Pts PIM +/-
62 9 10 19 149 4

Thrower didn't look at that bad either.

I was hoping to see more from guys like Gaunce, Faksa, and Frk to be honest.
