Good old Wiz. A Hab for a year, and then away he went. Now he’s a Blue Jacket, and much richer than you and I.
Remember when he took a puck in the face in Edmonton? We thought he was gone for weeks or months. But just three days later, at the Heritage Classic in Calgary, there he was, facemask and all, plugging away on the Canadiens blueline.
It hadn’t begun well for Wiz as a Blue Jacket. He was suspended for the remainder of preseason, plus with eight regular season games, for a nasty hit to the head of Minnesota’s Cal Clutterbuck which cost this feisty defenceman $536,585 in lost salary. But Wiz can still buy groceries. He signed with Columbus for six years/33 million, and is pulling down a healthy $7 million this year.
I liked the guy when he was a Hab, but he’s not a $7 million dollar player. These are numbers reserved for the cream of the crop, like Scott Gom………..F^&%.
Here’s Wiz’s hit on Clutterbuck.
