Being from Boston and seeing him play for two years, I can say that I thought he was going to be special, and he was drafted with that potential in mind. I still believe that, is that enough to base it on? A first hand account? Even ask Boston College fans, theyll say he was special from the first game he played against them.

He put up 55 points in 43 NCAA games which is incredibly high. In my opinion he'll be better than Grabovski, he has incredible hockey sense, great hands and I remember people commenting on his work ethic all the time when he was drafted. Nothing more than an opinion, not a knock against Grabo.

Also, he hasnt proven anything at the pro level? He put up nearly a PPG in his lone AHL season, does that excuse only count for Kadri?

I think Colin could be a solid #1 at just under a PPG. Maybe 70-75 potential.
That is more of a starting point when talking about Wilson.

My only problem is with trading Grabo for Wilson seems a bit lateral IMHO and seems odd after signing him long term. (Then again we did see it with Schenn.) But I digress I would much rather trade potential for potential.



Both have shown great strides in the AHL both have been pushed down by the current clubs. Let us think on the Schenn for JVR type of deal. Not on the Mike Richards for Brayden Schenn type of deal.
