Ullstrom is an unproven commodity who appears to currently be a 4th line player. The sharks need a solid proven 3rd line contributor, hence the interest in Bailey.
Yeah, I don't see why you'd want to trade an NHL player for Ullstrom (Nothing against Ullstrom. I'm happy to keep him considering he's worth less to others than he would be to us.) Islanders fans are bargain hunters. Don't sweat it.

I haven't seen enough of Braun, but I think a Bailey for a 4th D type guy is a good move.
