I don't see the isles tying up both with big contract extensions.
Bringing in a younger,cheaper top 4 defensemen, lets the isles move the one they think will be tougher to sign longterm.
I don't think the Isles move either player unless a solid, top four eating defensemen comes back to the team somehow- possibly by another trade. Parrish and Cairns + 6th rounder for Lydman and Gauthier is my 2 cents.
This summer: Depending on how much more Hammer would want than Aucoin, I would prefer Hammer in many ways. Though, I have to say, Oakie is pretty well liked by management and the team. He's an actual leader. Hammer is ascerbic, but that's what makes him so valuable on the ice. He can quarterback the pp and throw a nasty elbow if teams try and get dirty.
