Suter would be an awesome fit with Doughty for years.
Scuds is a UFA after next season and could partner with Greene for the ultimate 3rd pairing shutdown unit (w/ Martinez and the 7th d-man for 1 season). Or he could be traded.
They're going to keep Martinez because the philosophy has always been stay at home paired with a puck mover. We all saw how valuable that was in the playoffs. The problem with this, is that the moment it becomes public, what do you tell Scuderi? You better be damn sure you GET Suter and you have an immediate taker for Scuderi or you risk alienating a key cog of your championship run if you fail to actually land Suter. Much different scenario than Penner, who is UFA. Scuderi has a year left on his contract. I'm not saying I wouldn't want Suter, but there better be a good plan in place in case he goes elsewhere, which is likely.
