I never said Wilson is a better player than Cheek. He certainly is not. But Wilson is 19. Cheek is 20. It isn't like Wilson had to be moved in order for Cheek to be added to the team. I think it would have been a better idea keeping a player like Wilson for a playoff push.
They would have had to get rid of someone to make space on the roster. Maybe they are giving Wilson a chance to play somewhere next year? Not sure how many 19yr olds PG has.

The problem they had with Portland last year was keeping up with them. Cheek over Wilson helps in that regard. They never had a problem with teams trying to run them out of the rink, either against Brandon or especially Moose Jaw.
