The thing that strikes me is it doesn't even seem like the Isles tried to trade Wiemer. Given the number of teams who went after him at the waiver draft, clearly one of them would have flipped a pick to the Isles to be at the front of the line. I know I would have been plenty happy to see the Sens send a mid-round pick to get him. He is a perfect playoff warrior type.
