If the right deal is out there, we should not hesitate to move him. Just my opinion from what I see on the ice. Sure there are positives but the negatives are just too obvious. The fact is, since we got him, we have not improved and as the captain I have to question his leadership skills.
To be fair, the pinching was probably part of Wilson's system.

Did he pinch as much with Carlyle? I honestly can't remember.
