Isles flipped Hunter for Rolston( 1yr/$5m) to provide leadership.They took on only $1m more in salary.One bad contract traded for another bad contract.
Trading for Gionta,who's owed $5m per for each of the next 2 yrs holds no appeal.
I'd rather see Snow put that $5m towards the isles defense,which only has 3 players signed for next season.
