I honestly think that if JM can't get JB to a long term extension, he's got to make a move before the season starts. At that point Martin could go to teams that JB is willing to sign long term with, and get a VERY good deal. I think that FLA could potentially get 80% replacement for J-Bo, as well as a 1st + good prospect right now.

If Martin waits until the deadline, a team is unlikely to move a significant roster player, so FLA will be stuck with a late 1st round DP (which has about a 30% chance of contributing at the NHL level in 2013), a good prospect, and some NHL filler.
