Geno is getting payed enough as it is so no raise needed!
you and almost all of HFBoards seem to insist that Paul Martin's season last year was indicative of how he's always played in the NHL. last year was about as much of an off year for him as any defenseman in the NHL can have.

buying him out at this point means that the Pens have to move Lovejoy into the top 6, which would hurt more than having Martin.

also, you don't understand how NHL teams and contracts work if you think Malkin AND Letang are going to make any less than they have on their previous contracts. if anything, Letang and Malkin played themselves into gigantic raises (on any other team, maybe Malkin about $10M per year, Letang about $5-6M per year).
