Why do you want him so badly? He's not even top 5 right now.

I agree 100%. From what I saw Wilson just doesn't have the skill or sense to be a solid top 6 forward in the league. Hes a lot like Evgeny Artyukhin with less speed and a worse shot, I'm not saying Wilson is going to be a bad player but I just don't see the value in picking him that early on. If he was drafted later on maybe the second round I see the value in that, but I just don't see his ceiling warranting a pick in the teens

He will be better than Parker, but still in the same category.

It's funny how a good 1st round draft makes everyone forget that he's never won anything.
