Defensively he has not been the liability that some mention. Offensively, he is a threat and so hard to knock off the puck. He is one of your few creative minds that can throw the D and goalies off....instead of constantly shooting and driving the net, and hoping for the best.
I would not be surprised to see him playing against the Preds next season.
In following guys like the obvious, Hartnell, etc. and even Santorelli and Jones for that matter who could not crack past the 4 th line, and seeing them have success with other " systems ", it may be the best thing for both sides.
Wilson stated his game was lacking "detail" and his defense and forechecking weren't where the staff wanted them.

Hartnell didn't make it past the 4th line? Multiple 20+ goal seasons as a Pred from the 4th line is amazing.
