Tom Wilson

Tom Wilson would look great in Vancouver, especially if we are getting younger. He has grit, size, energy, and can chip in offensively.

Does Frank Corrado and Jordan Schroeder interest caps fans? What would we have to add?



What would it take to get him in a Canucks Jersey?

He seems to be a pretty important part of the Capitals organization, no? A recent 1st round who has already cracked the NHL lineup--I'm not sure why they'd move him for a pair of less valuable assets. I think the only way he'd be moved is in a package for a much better, more established player.

Caps have been pretty high on him since the Draft. Unless he was the missing piece for Weber, I can't see the Caps moving him.

I wish the Caps would move him to a scoring role and give him more mintues instead of trying to develop him into a 5 minute a night goon.

I think the only way to get him is in a package deal, maybe for Edler?

Edler for Johansson + Wilson?

Caps Coach likes Wilson. Caps GM likes Johansson. Nobody in the Caps like Defense. Can't see them doing that deal, regardless of value.

Kesler with his contract extended would get him

Or Edler

Take your pick

You think the Flyers would trade Laughton for him?

It might keep BSchenn out of danger to have Wilson in Philly.

Not a chance we trade two of our best young forwards for Alex Edler. We need shutdown defencemen, and Edler is not even close.

I appreciate that you're interested in a young talented player Like Wilson but you obviously have never watched him. This offer is not in the right ballpark.

People do throw this around much too easily. Although it would take a lot to get rid of him, no one is untouchable. Someone above mentioned him as an add-in for Weber. That makes more sense, he would have to go for a sizeable upgrade in a position of need.

Is Wilson going to be a 20 goal scorer, 200 hits and 100 pm player? Maybe maybe not but he should not be untouchable. Do the caps need him, yes. He needs to get his skating a little better but so do most kids his age. He should be a fan favorite for the caps... I wish the wings had someone like him.

Something around Edler makes the most sense for Washington. Possibly Kesler, but that would depend on what type of contract Grabovski wants. Hamhuis or Garrison would also work, should Vancouver be willing to deal them.

Kesler and Edler don't fill needs well enough to warrant trading arguably our best prospect. We need a shut down dman LHD and Edler is not that. The only way we're dealing Wilson is for a top 2 LH DFD.

Not to nit pick but Orr wasn't traded he left as a free agent. I agree though nobody untouchable.

I'd like to hear your explanation of how Wilson and his 2 goals are better than Kassian.
