After watching Watson at camp last week I think he and Wilson would make a good one two punch. They both have size and Watson has improved his game, especially his shot lately. He was ripping them last week. Leipsic can overcome his size but only if it's on the wing. A kid who may top out at 170 lbs at this point isn't going to make it in the NHL at center. He looks more like a Sully/Kariya type than anything and if he's in the middle, he's going to take a lot wear on his smaller frame. Imagine him up against some of the bigger centers like Thornton and Kopitar, it's not going to work. Just because we don't have one in the system right now doesn't mean 3 years down the road we won't. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
