It's about filling a need. The Isles need a top 4 dman who they can control for 3+ years. That's not Ballard. They also need big bodies that play physical, since their top 6 is pretty soft. A 1st rounder in the 24-28 range that wont pay dividends for 3-4 years isn't likely enough to give up a guy like Martin, who they like very much, has a good contract and is contributing now.
