I agree to a certain extent. I wouldn't be thrilled to see Wilson on the team. But assuming RNH, Huberdeau, Strome and maybe Scheifele get a big chunk of the available PP time and offensive zone starts, I could see Catenacci and Danault trusted more than Drouin and Shinkaruk to fill some other roles, for example. I think there's a balance of skill, experience and versatility to be found. Not necessarily picking all the most talented prospects, nor one dimensional grinders.
Of course, if the lockout ends, that changes everything...
