Isles add a good amount of size and grit to the lineup, both up front and on the backend. They also get great character players who play hard and give their all every night. Isles add a little salary, but with the dropped Nets bid and insurance money, it seems like they may be able to afford to.
Edmonton does this to shed a little salary (1.4million) while still acquiring a true #1 defenseman in getting Hamrlik back. They also get a guy with size who can skate, make plays, kill penaltis and play solid defense. Kvasha seems like he may be turning into a 50point or so player, and is young enough (25) to possibly still break out and become even more, especially on a skating team like Edmonton.
/edit: oops, mixed up which smyth was smith.
