    Well, he was signed by the Flames. Avs dealt for him in the Leopold deal (for 2nd rounder <=> Stefan Elliott).

    If you mean he tried out during training camp and made the team, that's incorrect. They acquired him from Calgary.

    But how about him? Well, he's a pretty solid third pairing defenseman, but he's wildly inconsistent. He has long stretched where he looks like a #4 defenseman, and other's where he looks like a #7 defenseman.

    And, despite pretty high end offensive numbers, his poise with the puck on his stick (especially in his own zone) resembles what I assume a person would look like had they unexpectedly been tossed a hand grenade.

    Yah the Flames signed him and then dealt him with a pick for Jordan Leopold...probably a decent deal both ways...

    Wilson was knock kneed in juniors and scouts were concerned about this ability to skate at the pro game...

    he's done well

    Not really, because the Avs got Stefan Elliott out of the deal, who alone will become a better player than Leopold OR Wilson.

    His profile on HF sure doesn't hold back any praise... it's pretty overwhelmingly negative for a guy who's since actually made it in the NHL, if only briefly.

    Big shot, can lay some massive hits but he doesn't have the hockey IQ to translate his offensive game to the NHL. Solid enough bottom pairing guy who will occasionally tease you with more because he does have some nice skills. Below average skater but he's improved enough that it's not a liability. Not sure why there's a thread about him though, every team has somebody like him.

    He is basically a #5-6 defender that doesn't look horrible playing 20 minutes a game if a team needs him to. When he loses his confidence he is quite bad, more so than most young defenders. When confident he is a very sneaky and heavy hitter and has surprisingly good outlet passes.
