Why do you think Colin Wilson is getting scratched?

This. Same goals, few less assists, 5mins less TOI, Willie getting PP duty while Hals got PK duty, plus generally Willie playing with much higher skilled linemates.
The ONLY player that you could argue Willie or Smith over is Yip, and while that's a huge offensive upgrade it's simply a misfit role for either. I hate not seeing Willie play, and kinda' hoping Trotz might give him or Smith a shot in a game 5 where he can protect them with last change. Not betting on it, and really, no one "deserves" to sit. We simply have 14 (or 15 if you wish to count Toots) Fs you could reasonably dress and expect to perform well as a team. We're rolling a pretty effective group right now.
