The progress that he has made has been amazing, I thought he was going to good things in his rookie year, but he succeeded mine and everybody elses expectations. If Neidermeyer leaves after next year and the way Martin has evolved, he could step in. He won't be Neidermeyer, but he will good enough for the Devils and that's saying alot.
As for having Nieds next season, it all comes down to the last year of his contract being void or not. So far the NHL indicates that all contracts during the lockout count as a year. We will see what happens when they finally agree on a CBA.
