Personally, I would almost rather have a hole on the D than Martin. It's one thing to be bad (which, Martin isn't really). It's another thing to give up in a puck race on the board to avoid a check when playing your freaking rivals in the freaking playoffs. It's sad when my wife is yelling at the TV harder than your 5 million dollar player is playing. I feel like too many people on these boards forget his crappiness in the playoffs and focus on his mediocre season. I'll take one clutch Talbot/Staal/Briere type over any number of soff Martin types any day. I personally would take the conditional 7th for him and run with it.

In all honesty, Pens will be looking for a decent return for him (more than he's worth probably). I would just want him gone in a Michalek-like trade. He's a cancer to our team.
