So I'm guessing that had something to do with the deal.
They upgrade from Wilson to Cheek for what amounts to three or four spots in the draft. Wilson probably wasnt making the team as a 20yr old next year so its a wash. Wilson's toughness is overrated and his skill leaves much to be desired. He cost the team with poor decisions and bad penalties as much if not more than he helped them with physical play/work along the boards.

Cheek is much more versatile and can be used in just about any situation, something that cant really be said for Wilson. The Oil Kings now have three lines that can contribute offensively.
