Trust me - we will regret not re-signing the Wiz.

Markov will break like glass again, and Hammer, Gill and Spacek are one year older. Gorges provides zero offense, as will Emelin. Can't see Weber making a huge impact offensively. Teams will be on to PK.

If we don't address the top 6 with an ELITE forward, we will struggle towards mediocrity yet again.

Wisniewski was on pace for a 50-60 point season. How do you replace that???

FRICK!
How do you know they didn't? They were reported to be in negotiations with Wisniewski earlier in the off-season. With the secrecy fetish of this organization there could be continual negotiations with him that aren't reported.

Move Spacek and Gorges, sign Hammer and Wiz(or sign someone like Erhoff, or make a move for a mobile puck moving defensemen) and you are left with something like this:

Markov-Subban
Hammer-Wiz(or something comparable)
Gill-Emelin
Weber

Looks quite mobile and strong to me.
You don't even need to move Gorges really. Just get rid of Spacek.

Sign Wiz at 5 for 25 with a NTC for the first 3 years.

Depending on what type of salary Hammer is looking at, and Gorges to some extent, keeping these guys is possible.

Markov-Wiz/Subban
Hammer-Subban/Wiz
Gill-Gorges
Emelin/Weber

I would consider that an elite defensive unit. Great PP and PK pairings too. Along with potential elite goaltending it goes a long way in mitigating what's clearly an anemic group of forwards.
