That 5-10% started getting contagious to otherwise uniformly excellent posters, haha.

I definitely fall into that category. Martin has played some great hockey so far this year and is showing his detractors wrong.

For the record though, if we had dealt Martin and retained Strait in the off-season, I wouldn't regret it.

I think he's a tremendous talent and we'd be in a huge hole w/o him.
Absolutely. When Letang is out of the line-up, we look very out of sorts.
