I believe it was Trxjw who said he stepped it up in the playoffs. If that is the case I could live with the pick.
Correct. Wilson was one of those cases where he looked like he was going to break out all season long, but he just never put it together. Finally after a good showing at the top prospects game, he started to improve.
What really sticks out for me were some comments I read from him about how the playoffs felt like a fresh start. He came out and dominated. Hitting everything in sight, and playing very well offensively. I think he just got so demoralized by the lack of success he was having in the regular season, that he couldn't get out of his funk.
The tools are there. He has great hands for a kid his size, and does extremely well when it comes to protecting the puck. Very good shot as well. His skating is unorthodox, but it's not nearly as bad as his detractors like to make it out to be. There's a lot of upside with him, but if he doesn't put it all together, he's good enough to be a Steve Bernier type. Hopefully without the penalties in the SCF.
