Tom Wilson has become one of the more polarizing Capitals players in recent years. A first round pick comes with certain expectations, and he has certainly not fulfilled all of them to this point in his young career. It may be too early to decide on his bust status quite yet, but those questions are rightfully being raised. As long as Wilson can keep contributing in a positive manner, whether the offensive numbers come or not, and his salary truthfully reflects his output, most Caps fans will want him on the team for as long as possible.
And that’s a good thing. He showed growth this year. If he continues to grow on the offensive side of the ice as well, it would make the Caps all the more dangerous.
