On no planet would Gunnarson get you Wilson. For some reason, Wilson is seen as some sort of "bust," even though he's been close to 20 goals the last two seasons, despite constantly being in Trotz's doghouse for his defensive game. He may have weaknesses defensively, but his ability to score goals and make plays is not at all in question. He's not going anywhere.

I like Franny, and was sad to see him go, but he's not a top 4 defenseman now and probably never will be. He would essentially be competing for icetime with Blum or Ellis, and I don't see him supplanting either.
