Fans loving a player doesn't usually come into consideration when you have a chance to add talent like Etem and DSP.
Doesn't really matter if DSP will be better than Martin. Martin was drafted by the Islanders, plays a key role, and just signed a 4 year deal. No real need to trade him for DSP, even if it is a slight upgrade.
