Marty has two years left on his contract and has honoured it and spent the better part of his career in Tampa. The man has done more for this franchise than anyone could have asked for, so I'd grant him his wish if he wanted to have another chance with a contender.
Like I said, if he requests a trade in his last season or 2 for one last hurrah at the Cup, fine. He's meant so much to this organization that we would at least owe him that much. But to simply think about what we could get in return is the wrong way to go about it. No matter what we get, it won't be equal value for what he means to us.
