Wiz is not exactly a gem, but these kinda players/at that age and in these situations where he already played for us and shown what he can do... it'd be a huge mistake to let him go if he wasn't asking for 5+mil from us.
That's from a guy who puts him on the first pairing with Markov? he's destined to be a 3rd pairing guy but we should start him on the 1st???

I wouldn't re-sign Wiz. Given we already have Markov, Subban, Weber and eventually Diaz, Wiz is redundant. I'd rather go for a big stay-at-home D

To right out conclude Emelin will be paired up with Markov just because of language is ridiculous.

Emelin's agent said that Emelin's biggest hurdle will be to learn English. It's not by playing and talking only in Russian that he'll take steps forward. And Markov won't be the one teaching him English, he'll have a teacher for that, and if I were that teacher, I would strongly suggest he'd be paired up with someone who speaks English first and knows just a bit of Russian, not the other way around.
lol, I'm fairly sure his teacher won't have a freaking word to say about whom he's paired with!
