Isles 2012-2013 top 4 is set with Hamonic, Streit, Vis and McDonald. Carkner is expected to pair with one of the ahl kids(Donovan/Ness) on the 3rd pairing.

Isles owner is saying he thinks this group is good enough, to make the playoffs if we get the lockout settled. So, regardless of what fans think of Frans Nielsen being expendable at this point, it's very unlikely that Snow agrees to trade 28 yr old FN for a 1st or 2nd yr D, headed to the isles #6/#7 spot.

It's been pointed out that only Hamonic/MacDonald/Carkner are signed beyond 2012-2013. Snow will have to make some moves, but not until the season ends. We'll see in the summer whether that's extending Streit and trading for another top 4 or letting Streit walk and signing/trading for two top 4 d-men...
