I don't think I could part with Wilson at this point. He was finally showing what he could do and while snipers are hard to come by, so are power forwards. Wilson was really coming into his own before his injury and honestly was the big reason we were as average as we were early in the season. Without him, I think we have get the number 1 pick hands down. And to be honest, while Vanek is a proven goal scorer, he's pushing 30 whereas Wilson is still under 25. That's just me though.

I think with landing Forsberg, we have a young sniper to add to some power forwards that we have coming up through the system in Wilson, Beck and Budish. Until Beck or Budish prove their worth long term, I think trading Wilson would be a step back.
