I disagree, he looked very good last year for the Avs before his concussion, and was starting to return to that level at the end of last year. THis year he looked good again, hard hitting with an underrated pass and a decent skater.

He was very much a Top 4 guy for us, probably our 2nd best Dman behind EJ this year, maybe Barrie has stepped up to that spot now though.

But IMO Wilson has played like a Top 4 Dman, for close to a year now, only when he was hurt that he didn't.
