Tom Wilson

12 posts in this topic

Willie's been on fire lately.  The big rig has some real get-up-and-go and we saw a great example of it last night.  Putting him on the first line with Ovi and Backstrom was a good move that's really been paying off.  He needs to remain there.  Finally getting to see the potential seen to make him a first round pick. 

After a slow start, the Caps are picking up steam and now are tied for first in the Metro.  I really like the make-up of this team, there seems to be a looseness in the way they play, and the speed is better now.

Defense has been sketchy, but it appears to be getting better.

It's a little better.

Don't look now though, but the Caps sit alone at top of the very competitive Metro.  The Pens are fighting to stay out of the cellar.

Change the goal to Connolly. ....

Interesting ....

It's a shame Wilson didn't get the goal - or even an assist - on the play but it was all due to his net presence that the Caps got that goal.  Willie is slowly but surely rounding into a decent top-6 forward.

Yea, the slow mo showed it going off the Bruins skate but he made that play happen at both ends .....

In the first period I really wasn't happy with him on the first line leading the breaks and just dumping the puck down into the corner well ahead of Backstrom and ovi.....

Just seemed too hectic for the top line .....
