You can make fun of the guy all you want, but he's a leader off/on the ice. He helps young dmen and young players mature.
Didn't he say something to the effect that he wouldn't sign with the NYI because they had a terrible arena?
IIRC, Snow made a comment after that as well.
On a more serious note, this is the type of trade I expect them to make. It may not be Martin in the end, but a veteran who has played at an above average level in the past that adds skill, experience, and depth.
They will likely try to find a cheaper option similar to Martin, or maybe Martin himself, it's a possibility.
