You have no clue what you're talking about. The cap calculator is used to see how players and their contracts fit under the cap. Read about it next time before posting.

He wants "long term" and would be kidding himself if he thinks he deserves a raise for being injured and the team needing to replace him via trades, despite being a top D-man a couple of years ago.

Wiz @ 4.7 for 4 yrs. (Maybe front-loaded if he wants)
Wiz already said he wants to be back. He wants to be on a contending team with real fans. He's said that many times to Habs media and when he was in Chicago/Anaheim. It's a fair contract and it might be worth GOLD if Markov or Subban are injured for any amount of time.

Gill was great, but when you look at what he brings and what he takes away...
Penalty Killing
Roster Spot (Yes)

Most likely D:
Markov - Yemelin
Gill - Subban
Gorges - Spacek

There's no room for Wiz. Spacek AND Weber together won't be scratched. And Weber will likely ask for a 1-way contract (which he deserves).

The summer is just starting, but unless Spacek is ridden of, the D is not improving one bit (something we REALLY need).
