I should also add that I don't expect Wiz's rights to fetch us a 2nd or 3rd. Don't forget that with Bryzgalov, the Flyers had a couple of weeks of exclusive rights, plus they had a guy with no qualms about signing early if he got the right deal.

In Wiz's case, the team would only be getting him a week ahead of UFA status and I think they'd be fairly scared of the fact he appears destined to try out free agency.

These factors lower the compensation value for trading his rights. I'd say the over/under would be a 5th.
