Trading Hamonic defeats the purpose of upgrading the weak D.
The only blueline prospect the isles have who's upside comes close to Hamonic is De Haan,an AHL rookie,expected to be on next season's roster.
Losing a quality,young forward like Grabner would hurt in the short term,but with Nino/Strome/Kabanov/Anders Lee/Nelson in the pipeline,he would be easier to replace then Hamonic.Imo the isles D pool is not as deep as the forward prospect pool.
As for Martin..he's young,cheap and brings the physical game the isles need more of,so no reason he would be shopped.If he's dealt,it won't be in a minor deal or as a sweetener.
