Weight was retiring.The isles wanted to trade Hunter, who'd battled injuries the last few seasons and had 2 yrs/$4m left on his deal.

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.
