So I think this poll should be re-done with multiple options of salary/term for these players. And you can also include the option of BOTH Doan and Semin, which we could achieve if Martin or Orpik were traded. You can say it's unrealstic that we would trade both, but it's not anymore unrealistic than suggesting we would offer 4-year terms to either of these players.
would be tough to justify moving either of them right now with our defense. We'd have to trust two rookies to play from the get go and trust that one of them or Niskanen can be in the top 4.
