A good playmaker needs someone who can shoot the puck and bury it. It's not his fault he doesn't have anyone on his line that can bury the puck. If he had a finisher, his numbers would go up as well.

You don't trade good pieces, you build around them and give them the pieces they need to succeed as well. Smith and legwand have looked good together. Find a smith like player to play alongside wilson and i guarantee wilson's numbers would be in the 60 pt a year range. If legwand is indeed traded, i could see wilson and smith on a line together becoming quite the duo. Put hornqvist on the other size possibly and you've got the playmaker, the sniper and the garbage pail guy in front of the net.
this is sooooo spot on!!!
