Wilson doesn't really fit anywhere else than the 3rd scoring line. There's going to be some juggling of the six wingers for those top three lines. For now SK/Erat and Radu/Horn are the wing pairings on the top two lines. We still have a chance of seeing AK slide up and either SK or Horn moving to the third line. Perfect world, Smith steps up his play at center and we put him between AK and Wilson for that 3rd line but he's not there just yet. Still inconsistent at the dot, gripping the stick too tight offensively, and thinking rather than reacting defensively.
Bourque seems the likeliest choice to move to the 4th line when Willy is ready. Willy with Rads or Willy with AK either way places a lot of offensive skill and instinct on a line. Don't think Smith has or will engender enough trust this season for Trotz to put him with Willy and/or AK. Barring injury, Spaling and Goose are your 3rd and 4th line centers. Trotz will hold out as long as he can before splitting up 74-12-10. It's a last resort move, based on his comments.
