I agree about the miscasting, Wilson had Beauchemin, Komisarek, and Schenn pinching like crazy, which wasn't tailoring to their strengths at all. That said, I love mobile, puck carrying defensemen, and I think in this day of zone defense, offensive defensemen are becoming the x factor that can give one team the edge over another.
