I think the upgrade would be more than "slight" eventually. Smith-Pelly is of a higher pedigree than Martin and matched his best season points-wise in 49 games as a 20 year old.

He's on a different level talent-wise. It's a significant upgrade. And since when do who drafted a player and being signed to a contract stop a player from being traded.

I realize Martin is a fan favourite, but that's not what I'm interested in. I want to know if we have a fair deal, not how much Isles fans love Martin... Because in this deal, they're getting the MUCH better bottom 6 asset.
