I still think the desire is to trade J.P. Dumont as well.
I also think that Poile will try to bring in a significant top line forward (Semin, Marleau, etc.) for another reason: he can't go cheap this year (read: a cap floor team) and expect either Weber or Suter to want to remain with Nashville. Moving Dumont would be a requirement (or a larger budget) to do so of course. Swapping $4 million players doesn't make much sense either in terms of improving the team (unless there's a significant age difference).
We can't afford Marleau unless we let Grebeshkov go, which, IMO, would be foolish after trading Hamhuis unless Poile thinks he can get a good defender for a great deal in free agency.
