Why do you think Colin Wilson is getting scratched?

I would hardly say he's been playing "consistent, responsible hockey". He has as much offensive talent as anyone on the team; more than most. And I'm all for guys trying to be more creative with the puck. Wilson's problem is that he still has trouble figuring out WHEN to try to get creative. He'd had a few bad turnovers recently in dangerous sections of the ice. I wasn't surprised to hear he'd been scratched.
Don't read too much into it, though. He's still one of the top nine players on the team, new additions included. And I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do once he's healthy and back on the ice. A third line of Wilson-Gaustad-A.Kostitsyn could be a real nice line in the playoffs. Two wingers that can score and get creative with a big, defensively-responsible center that can grind the puck and dig along the boards? I'm hoping to see it.
