In pointblanks archives is a Botta NYI draft article. It was posted days before Jeff Carter was dealt from Philly. The isles were shopping their high lottery pick and demanding a young stud or potential young stud, using that pick as the key piece.

Botta wrote about Carter being available, that he was the type of high end talent they wanted and that he was only about 25/26 yrs old. But, Botta warned that the isles would probably pass because of his new longterm contract. They'd been burned on Yashin/DiPietro. Botta also questioned Carter's temperment, saying he had the rep for pouting. Botta questioned if the isles should add such a personality, to a young lockerroom.

So, I'm gonna disagree. Imo it's lame statement when some says 'it's the isles' to explain a move that makes no sense, that Snow's never made before.
