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.
I don't see Snow trading the isles top prospect, so he can get an upgrade on 22 yr old Martin in the bottom 6.
Isles have 4 big, physical wing prospects in Nino, Kabanov, Lee and Ullstrom.6'3 Nelson may also end up on the wing.
No interest in moving Strome for a winger.
