And since we're not exactly up against the cap, why just throw away another 2nd rounder without giving the return a chance to prove what he can do?
I think that's too much for a Dman that only had one good year and hasn't truly established himself yet. I'd rather take a little less out and offer it to Pitkanen, who's more proven and better defensively imo.
I wouldn't have offered Wiz more than 4M.
