Streit and PAP for Hamilton and whatever we gotta do to even out the salaries.
I take that and run. Streit has been pretty bad this year, is coming off injury, has only 1 year left on his deal. PAP is a goner soon. Hamilton is a stud D prospect, better than any the Isles have had in... since Berard? I think it's a good gamble.
Although Garth would probably want at least some mediocre NHLer to come back so that if Hamilton goes bust at least we'd still have "insert name here".
EDIT - OK you mention the salary evening - but give us somebody who at least belongs in the NHL, last thing we need is another Rolston, Reasoner, Staios, Pandolfo, etc.
