He'll probably work with Bylsma to adjust the defensive system to get better results from Martin and the rest of the D. and if that doesn't work, then he'd try to dump him.
it's not just because he had a bad year though. It's also because he's our most expensive defenseman and at the same time the most easily replaced/most redundant skillset of our top defensemen. I still think Martin is a good player despite last year. I think he'll show it this year either with us or someone else. But I still think it makes sense to trade him.
