If you are Gauthier, you probably aren't looking for a D on the FA market. I would love to see Wisniewski come back, especially ahead of a Jagr or a 4.5M$ Laich, but I can't see it happening. Assuming Gorges and Weber come back, the D is Markov, Subban, Gill, Gorges, Spacek, Emelin and Weber. Nash will most likely get some games. I think this is an acceptable D while we wait for Spacek to come off the books.
If Gauthier can spend the available money on a scoring winger, then he has to go for it. If he can't get it done, Wisniewski must get an offer. That will probably push Weber on the 4th line, which is better than having Pyatt or even Pouliot (which I would resign btw, who knows what can happen!).
Markov - Subban - Wisniewski is a formiable trio of offensive weapons. No more Gorges - Spacek on the 2nd PP unit haha!
