McDo is a way safer d-man than PK, and he is as good as a skater.
That's another thing. Comparing Tortorella and Martin is also painful. While Tortorella doesn't hesitate to bench Gaborik an entire 3rd period during a CSF game, Martin kept playing MONSIEUR Gomez during every crucial moment at the end of games...
