The Isles can toll his contract to keep him. Would make sense. They would only have to pay him 3m even though cap hit is 5m. Contract was front-loaded. I'm sure Thomas would want an extension if he comes back. Doubt he would come back for one year. Makes no sense for the Isles to not toll his contract.
As other posters have poionted out. I'm guessing the parameters of a bigger trade were discussed. But, Isles don't want to sell off as long as they are in the hunt. If they fall out, then they can deal Vis and Streit anywhere they want. Maybe, one of them to Boston.
