Paul Martin Trade or Buyout? (if there's a season)

Respectfully, a good defenseman (regardless of system) doesn't play the gutless, stick-checking, contact-allergy, totally disinterested style of play that Martin exhibited all of last season. I don't much care what he has done before that... the guy was and is supposed to be a leader (if not
leader) on the blueline. I shouldn't flip on the game and watch a completely green Simon Despres making the team's veteran defensive leader look like a nincompoop. On
The system doesn't help any but Martin consistently displayed all of the characteristics last season of a defenseman that this team should ideally want nothing to do with. But I think that the team's situation on defense dictates that we'll have to put up with him for at least a little longer.
Burning the team's one-time buyout is probably more than Martin deserves, honestly.
