In 2010, Team USA's coach and GM had this to say about his injury and loss to the team:

Martin then became a UFA that summer, got paid like a top-pairing defenseman, and was being sought at that price by multiple other teams.

Your argument about Martin not being a top-pairing defenseman since the lockout - apart from last year - just doesn't hold any water. You have nothing to support your opinion.
They also chose Komisarek to play for team USA, they must be pretty good at evaluating talent.
