So mad the Preds are in our division cause they could probably never live down trading his rights to us.
Agreed.

I still think he ends up with you guys. He is rumored to want to play in the west, you have a huge need for him with Lidstrom gone and tons of money/cap space to spend on him or even overpay if necessary.

As for the Pens trading Martin for cap room. There were a few reports floating around local media twitters and a national one that a few teams were interested (Didn't mention a specific team). He does have to be traded to clear his cap hit though. He has a NMC and I'm pretty sure because of that he can't be sent down to the minors.
