Already moved one guy who was becoming too expensive as a 3rd line center, why would they want to create the same problem again?
While I think Martin would be an OK fit in DET, a deal wouldn't make any sense, IMO, without a 3rd team, or prior trade, involved.
Pens would need to find a solid 2nd pairing veteran to replace Martin's spot. I don't see that guy coming from DET, so straight up doesn't work. In another thread re: WPG, I asked about Mark Stuart. Stuart on the 2nd pair along side Niskanen or Despres, could make Martin expendable. Pens could afford to take some salary back with the space they created in the Staal and Michalek deals, though not sure who DET would be willing to move.
