Donovan/Ness stay in the minors. Either Visnovsky reports or Garth trades for a top-4 defenseman, and Martinek goes back to being the 7th. At least there's more depth in this position now, claiming Hickey and Finley will help more than hurt.
I have a feeling that the Isles are fine with Martinek on that 2nd pairing with Streit if Visnovsky doesn't show. Don't see them going for another defender, much less a top-4. If Vis comes I think he'll probably start on the bottom pairing with Carkner and work his way up. Isles will probably want to make sure he gives a **** before they give him quality minutes. That's JMO though.
