I still think Martin can put in some good seasons. Last season was awful for Martin, but Malkin wasn't looking very good there either for 2 years. Please note Martin=/Malkin in my mind, just posting an example.

Lovejoy should have decent value for a young team looking for a 5-6th D man. He actually is pretty good there IMO (bad playoffs aside). At least the Pens got rid of their worst D man in Michalek this offseason. For as bad as Martin was, Michalek was worse. I have never seen a D man as "lusive" as he was in the corner. He got lined up and crushed game after game. His best move was flopping onto the ice or screening the goalie. All that for a "very low" 4mil.
