We saw Wilson hit a groove last year. He has shown the offensive ability this year. I still maintain that he will be a productive forward. The key is finding a linemate with some offensive ability that Trotz is willing to let play with Wilson, oh ... and powerplay time would help.

And by the goaltending/Trotz comments I am insinuating that the poor goaltending caused Trotz to shore up the defensive game even more then he has in the past.

Just my 2 cents.
I don't necessarily disagree with you. Just a lot of leeway being given. I'm not so sure he's going to wind up being much more than he has been, but I'd be thrilled to see the opposite.
