I don't see Snow making any major moves until the season is over considering there are several players that need to prove themselves this season - namely Bailey.

Signing Edler as a ufa, would be ideal for the Isles and Isle fans. Get the player, without moving any of the isles top young talent. But, even on a crowded ufa market, he'll get plenty of interest because he'll be one of the best players.

Kesler's recovery from his wrist and shoulder surgery, is slower then expected. He's months away from coming back. What if this trade+ extension was made at the start of this season, instead of the trade deadline?

Both teams increase their chances of making the 2012-2013 playoffs. The isles have a defensive partner for Hamonic for the next 4-6 season.
