From our perspective, if Morrow bounces back with good stats and we're still sure to miss a playoff spot, we're going to ask for somewhat of a premium in return for *our captain*- please don't forget that. If it's Joe Morrow, Despres, Tangradi, ____________(insert name) is immaterial. If you'd want him at that juncture under such conditions, we'd expect a good return and it's most likely a good prospect or a young roster player, which negates Martin (no, thanks).
Well, if that happened, then of course his services would be at a premium. But we can only work with what we know now.

I mean, I could wax about what return my Pens could get for Martin if he returned to form, but that wouldn't get me very far, would it?

Contrary to what a lot of outdated websites have him listed as, Neal has played RW exclusively since coming to Pittsburgh.
