Nino Niederreiter would be another player that the Coyotes would be interested in. Can we deal?
I think you confused Rundblad and Gormley with Summer and Schlemko in your offer

Isles have at least 2 rookie d-men, Donovan+ Ness, who'll push for a roster spot if the lockout ends this season. Reinhart+ De Haan will push for spots in the 2013-2014 training camp. Also Mayfield, Pelech, Pedan, Pokka, Kitchon arein the pipeline.
So, I doubt Snow's shopping for blueline prospects.
6. Chris Summers, Defense
2010-11 Ranking: 5th
Date of birth: 02/05/1988
Age: 23
Height: 6'2''
Weight: 210
Shoots: Left
Statistics: 28 GP, 0 G, 2 P (Portland-AHL)
Acquired: First round, 29th overall in 2006 by Phoenix

The Good: Summers is a plus skater who one source describes as having great mobility and very good skating mechanics. His defensive game is his calling card, as he checks talented forwards at a desirable level. Summers plays a firm, tough physical game and his overall defensive end reads tend to be the right ones.

The Bad: Summers has fringe offensive ability and while his puck-moving looked a little better this year in terms of his decision pace, he's a basic first-pass type of player.

Projection: He could be a third pairing defender.
