MAB was signed as an FA.
Wisniewski was acquired for a second round pick.
See a pattern? Guess what, we traded a serviceable player on an expiring contract for a handcuffing 3-year deal. Except this time, we're a longshot at making the playoffs.
How incompetent can you be to repeat the same mistake each and every year?
The best part is that this time, Markov was coming off a major injury. Re-signing Wiz was the obvious move to make. Guess where we are now? Yup, looking from the outside.
Markov injury is a serie of bad luck (IMO)
I dont think that the habs wouldve been able to sign Wiz and Markov
The actual situation make it easy to decide between Markov and Wiz.
Markov is better than Wiz in general
