I think we can all pretty much agree that Lovejoy should be gone... followed by Martin if he can fetch us an ideal winger of course.
Forget Lovejoy. I think we all recognize that he's gone.
As for the D, I could see keeping Martin and moving Niskanen if Martin turns his game around fairly quickly. One thing that Martin has over Niskanen is the ability to play a shutdown role. If we can get Martin the right partner (a larger physical defensive type - Dumoulin perhaps?), I think they could excel at that. I don't see Niskanen ever having this ability. I like him better as an overall D who's younger and has a nicer contract... but that could also mean we could fetch a better return from him...
