I think the idea is some people feel there are guys ready to step in who are just as mobile as Martin but bigger and stronger (guys like Dumoulin potentially or Morrow next year), so if we can get that Colin Wilson kid from them, overall it would be worth it in the long run.

Only problem is I don't know that Wilson could convert to wing, as he's a natural C. There's no other forward on that team who will make our offense appreciably better long-term and for that reason probably no one worth trading Martin for. We might be able to get more for him elsewhere.

That aside, Letang, Orpik and Despres are all Top 4 quality D. You speak as if Martin is our Top D and he definitely isn't.
