Martinez still has some very good upside, always makes the right play, very calm with and without the puck, the Kings have no need to trade any defensemen right now. Let it play itself out when the older guys hit free agency.
I just think DL will make a deal at the deadline, and the area of strength to trade from is defense. I think Martinez will hold more trade value though, just because he's NHL 'proven' while Voynov isn't.
