With alec gone they have a spot to get a look. The kings would be looking to get a number one pick in the draft this coming year. Not saying martinez alone would get it but adding him to either Andrei Loktionov or Jonathan Bernier they should be able to get one plus another young player ( hoping a scoring lw that can play next year)
I think you are confusing "ready for a look" with being an NHL regular. Just because the Kings have some defensemen in the pipeline, doesnt mean they are NHL worthy.

You must 'hope' somebody gets injured, so you can see how good somebody else is.
