I think we could get a 3rd at best but hoping to snag a 2nd in exchange for wiz and a 4th...
The other way to look at that, is that his play since coming to Montreal may have proven that he was worth more than a 2nd then, so a 2nd could be entirely reasonable for a team that might see him sliding into a #2 defense position. I'm sure teams have paid more to complete their top pairing in the past. There just aren't that many RHS defensemen out there right now who are capable of what the Wiz brings every night. Sure, we have the luxury of PK Subban, but with our cap space, I don't see any reason to unload some of our embarrassment of RH riches onto the rest of the league just yet.
