Wilson's Turn

Last night the number 7th pick in the 2008 NHL entry draft showed why he should be in Nashville and not with the Terriers this season. Wilson finished the night with three points a goal, and a penalty in the Predators 5-0 blanking of the Atlanta Thrashers.  He also eared first star honers. Colin had the assist on the first and fourth goals and scored the 5th and final goal of the blanking.

> Pred's coach commented after the game.
"Some guys, they can't adjust their games or their game doesn't translate to the next level,'' "(Wilson has) got power, he's got some smarts. I thought Wilson was really good up front. He’s a really good talent, I’m glad we drafted him.”
