If there would be a trade involving the Pens & Minny's Setoguchi, I agree with your assessment that Martin would be too much of a cap hit for them to take especially since the new CBA has yet to be agreed upon and its been speculated that the salary cap will probably drop this year once agreed upon. The Seto deal would probably have to involve Kennedy (as a sweetener) and one of our younger D that is waiver eligible and Yeo & Fletcher are familiar with since their stay with the Pens. If not, a Niskanen (a Minnesto native) Setoguchi swap would be ideal for both sides (assuming that Shero likes Martin and he turns his game around considerably).

To be honest, Heatley would make more sense for the Wild to move as well as PM Bouchard (which I hope Shero doesn't take a flier on).
