The way of the league is going over all, skill kills. Hockey is all about skating now. I see no mention that he is a good skater.
Comparisons to Lucic are promising but are diminished when I hear he has had some injury issues.
Hitting won't happen much if he can't skate, no fighting if he cant stay healthy.
If Lucic doesnt pan out, who does he compare to...
Good though, Philly didnt get him.
We do need more compete though. You just gotta be careful...a lot of high compete guys in the CHL can't make it skill-wise in the NHL. I'm not unhappy, though. The kid has a chance. Hopefully, the Caps aren't just being conservative. It seemed like they had to twist each other's arms to take Forsberg. Not sure about these guys...(I'm coming back to reality).
You know what? At least Wilson has Lucic as his upside with Neil as his lowest potential most likely. The more I think about this pick the more I like it. If he can get 50+ points next year, it's a great pick IMO.
