He has shown good offense and defense, the knock on him is putting them together consistently, something he has shown to do more often this season. Good trade for both teams IMO, as Wishart is probably worth more than our 2nd round pick and is closer for sure, while Rolie is our number 1 straight away.
I think that is all the Isles fans are asking for. If he can make the team as soon as next year, and be a 2nd pairing dman soon after that, the trade will be a very good one for the Isles (and if TB can go far in the playoffs, this could be a good trade for both teams).

I would rather have a young 2nd pairing dman than a late first round pick, based on the number of prospects the Isles have and the need for NHL ready talent.
