I don't think Despres would start though. At least on the top pair. That would let Martin also mentor Josi and Ellis, which could help them. Also, I'm not convinced that Ellis is NHL ready, he hasn't done anything to impress me so far in his career (Preds are my 2nd favorite team, I watch them almost as much as the Pens). And if Nashville would be fine with those 2, they wouldn't have been on the Pens about Martin at the draft.
