Me too. Like I mentioned earlier, I think Trotzy would be more lenient with him if he was putting up Erat, Legwand, or Fisher numbers...but he's not. And all of the aforementioned are good two-way guys.

There's no reason why a guy of Wilson's talent can't put up the numbers of those three...and I think that's why he's in the doghouse. Wilson shouldn't be on the lower lines with the grinders and hustle guys. He should be top 6...but to be top 6 in Trotz's system, you must have at least some two way ability.

Meeting half way would be if Wilson invests a little more time on the defensive aspects, and upping his offensive production to the level where we all know it could be.

Right now, he's meeting halfway with our lineup...which is killing him. He's not producing enough to play with the top 6, and he's not enough of a grinder/forechecker for the bottom 6.
