I think sometimes think "If this guy is worth x and this guy is worth x then if we package them together we'll get something worth 2x." But it doesn't necessarily work that way. I'd put his value at a 2nd or 3rd like has already been stated.

Also, I don't think 'Bodnarchuks future is as a "hitting" dman. He hits for his size, but I don't think he's as physical as a guy like Bouillion, a similarly undersized dman. I've seen him a lot between his days in Providence and now Manchester. I saw him in a couple B's training camps. He's just not an NHL dman. Martinez is. Keep him.
Oh ok well to me suggesting a player is worth a 3rd is the same as saying he sucks. I really do like having Martinez despite me saying i would be ok with tradeing him. I willing to say Alec has more talent then any of the last cup winners imo. I was only useing richardson as a base of why i think hes worth a mid 2nd and B prospect.

As for Bodnarchuks furture i'm confortable in saying most of the talk on the kings board and i ve heard from there own annousers are saying hes playing the best all round game on the monarchs roster. This is why i encluded him in players ready for a look. From what i`ve seen frist hand if the kings are needing a hitting defenseman he is the best of what we got in house.
