Secondly, when one team is trading FROM a question-mark position, and the other from a surplus, guess who is overpaying?

GM's, thankfully, aren't so narrowminded.
It's not about Martin being awful, it is he's soft. That's the last thing the Oilers need is another Gilbert and Gilbert was tougher then Martin.

I don't get were your coming from about the surplus part, because the same could be said about both teams. One fact is that the Pens D needs to get bigger, because what I saw in the playoffs their D was push around.
