I like Martin-he's a nice player to have on your team. But he's also overrated because of the type of player he is (every team's fans overrates players like him). Martin will barely move the needle over the course of a season.
I see MacDonald playing on this team's 3rd pairing in the future, but I think he would be one of the better 3rd pairing guys in the league.
Okposo has been fine. He had a rough stretch this year but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt since his season was cut short last year. BTW, a solid 2nd-liner is all we need him to be anyway. I see Strome playing on JT's wing, giving us a full 1st line.
You severely underrate Martin. Even if he doesn't develop any further he'll be a solid 3rd liner who we got in the 5th round. However if he does continue to develop there really is no telling how high his ceiling will go. He could end up being anything from a Bertuzzi to a Lucic. There really aren't many players like him. He's the type of guy who can be a playoff warrior for this team once we get to that level. He should be one of the last guys the fans are down on.
