Plus, the Bolts have a much bigger need for a lefty-shooting two-way top-4 dman. I only suggest it would be a lesser deal because Jonsson is not a No.1 dman like Hamrlik, doesn't put up nearly as many points and has that worrisome history of injuries.
Look at what MM asked for from the Leafs 6 months ago for either Hamrlik or Jonsson:N. Antropov in a package.
Jonsson's played 76 and 71 regular seaon games the last 2 yr,has played every game this season.
Jonsson's the only one of the nyi top 4 who's signed for next season.Isles won't deal Jonsson cheaply.They'd rather take his 21-25 mins a night,then the spare parts another team would offer after citing his concussion history.
