ive heard some conversation among the caps management and coaches and their media staff on this. two things.

1. as of last season, reports were consistant that Wilson was a man among boys in junior hockey. ive heard several comments that scouts and oates have said they don't think there is anything for him to learn in the OHL.

2. Wilson has been a target of junior level players in the pre season as he's the king of the mountain. I heard a suggestion on the caps report that sending him back to junior hockey turns him into a target night in and night out.
