And, they may well trade Parrish but 1) Warrner's trade value is probably higher than Parris, 2) they won't be going after more defensemen - they'll probably get picks and prospects.
This is where I don't really follow your reasoning. While I realize that the Isles have probably the strongest top four in the league (if not top 5), you still don't rule out Warrener making it. Yet in Calgary Lydman has been playing ahead of Warrener so far this season (16 games isn't alot of judge, but that's the case so far). Sutter uses Lydman in every situation whereas he tends to only use Warrener in even strength and penalty killing situations.
