In an ideal world things would go like this...

1-Markov signs for 2 years at 11 mil or 3 at 15.5-16
2-Gorges signs for 3 years at 8.25 or 4 at 10.5.
3-Wiz's rights are traded to a Western team for a 2011 late 2nd or early 3rd rounder.
I think that's an accurate picture of what to expect.

Even though Bryz's rights netted a decent return, the thing that worries me about whether or not the Habs would be able to ship Wiz's rights out is the debacle that surrounded Hamhuis' rights last year. I think there's a chance that the Habs could find a taker, but I don't think that there's going to be much of a return. Who knows though? I've been wrong before.
