You both do realize that Yannick Weber was going to get a contract no matter what, as he's as green as they come and is a RFA. Nothing changed with this signing, it's the same situation as yesterday, where Weber is an unproven player slated to be on the lineup. It is not a sign that Wiz won't be coming back (whether it happens or not). Weber getting a contract means nothing, he could still get traded at the draft, he could have a bad camp, he's only gonna be a sophomore.
If Wiz is gone, it's gonna be because the Habs want a bigger option for the 2nd pairing, because they do have the space to sign Wiz or someone else.
I think the fact that we have Weber indirectly pushes Wisniewski out the door, as do Markov and Subban(assuming Markov is signed before July 1st). He won't be a great shutdown guy as he is average defensively and Subban and Markov are as skilled or more at puck moving and on the PP. The fcat that he would probably cost about 5 mil a year on a 4-5 year deal to re-sign right now is also a pretty big factor.
