I'm banking on the fact that Weber has improved already, Emelin is a lot better than people think (how many years pro in the KHL? He's 25) and that they feel Diaz might be ready by seasons end.

A depth signing of Hammer isn't a bad idea where as signing Wiz long term or even Bieksa could actually become our "Brian Campbell" a great player who is disrespected by fans because he can't produce at 100% value and thus takes up necessary cap space.

I personally love Wiz/Bieksa but if Gauthier feels we could be building from within which is a strength for any NHL team (cheap players who produce ftw) then I stand by Gauthier.

So far all the signings or rumored to be close to done signings = have been good terms, good years, etc. He's not handcuffing us but at the same time keeping our options open. I like this and I think we may actually have a gem in Pierre Gauthier. We'll have to wait and see but ever since he's come on board I've been thrilled.

I actually have faith that Wisniewski's rights may be traded for an asset possibly a desperate team gives up a 2nd or 3rd. That's quality considering we had Wiz all season when we needed him. Let's wait to see what PG can pull off!
