I just don't see him as an answer.

Look, at the end of the day, Wilson and Smith look to be the future in the pivot for the top two lines. Unless we can acquire someone who can bump Smith down, that is probably our future whether we like it or not. Spaling will probably be our third line guy. Watson will probably move to wing to play a top 9 role for us.
Stat lines can be pretty deceiving. For instance, the 21 year old playing almost exclusively in defensive and PK situations has a whopping 1 point less, in 1 more game, than one of our "future pivots."
