And honestly, I don't think Bernier + Martinez gets you all that much more than Bernier on his own gets.
I do value your opinion on the kings defense and i ll agree with muzzin proberly the best of them coming but untill they get a look in the nhl no one knows on how good they would be or not. There has been defenseman that something just clicks when they get into nhl action. My point being if they never get a game you will never know. Bodnarchuk right now is the best most consistant defenseman on the monarchs. He is the hitting defenseman that the kings lack ( theres some kings fans thinking we need this not me thou ) I ve watched him play this year and hes hitting players with good soild hits and playing soild defensive play.
I disagree with ur value on martinez. He is the kings most underrated defenseman. As i stated above he has the best instint on when to join the rush on the kings. He rarely makes mistakes on the defensive end He is also only 25 he will get better. He will develop into a 2nd pairing defenseman if giving the chance to play it. Right now hes stuck on the 3rd pairing due to slava and drew playing ahead of him not because he doesn't have the ability. I would rather see him playing the power play then slava. The was a while this year he was the only defenseman on the pp that was hitting the net consistently. If the kings payed a 2nd for brad richardson then martinez is easily worth that plus a b prospect on his own.
