Wilson was a center as far as I know, his entire career until the Preds. He is big and strong on the boards, so I sort of see why Trotz wants him there. I think he is missing out on Wilson not using him there.
Compare other teams top 2 or 3 centers. Fisher, Legwand and Spaling would all be, at best 3 or 4th line.....my opinion.
Regardless, Trotz is molding him into a dump and chase winger. Is this good?
Fisher and Legwand are 2nd line possibly 3rd line at the worst centers to me. 4th no way. I think Trotz will back off the dump n chase when he can get some guys ready that are a little more skilled and trust them. Hopefully one day Smith and Wilson.
