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.
I get where you're going, but do you honestly believe Snow would make a move like this? I surely don't considering his track record. If a move is made, I could see something happening at the trade deadline only if the Isles are legitimately in striking distance of a playoff spot.

Some of the names being mentioned (Strome is NOT available btw) are players that either have this season to prove they are a part of the future (it's going to be a put up or shut up year for Bailey) or are already important pieces going forward - Frans.

I've said it several times, but I don't see Snow having an issue with the potential numbers game until this coming offseason at the earliest.
