Yip is in as a mucker, grinder, energy guy ... which of those words describes Wilson? Yip's role is not one Wilson is suited for just as Yip isn't suited for a winger slot on a scoring line where Wilson is lost in the shuffle behind Bourque, AK, Erat, Radulov, Hornqvist, and SK.

Wilson has the talent to pass Bourque and possibly SK on the depth chart ... but to do so takes work which he hasn't shown himself willing to do. Being happy with his game has him watching playoff hockey, not participating.
