The problem is, Martin struggled for one season. Volchenkov has had multiple seasons of uninspired play. He looks timid and his normally sound defensive acumen doesn't seem to be there.

For the record, I would've given Martin another shot. Same with Myers (writing off a 23 y/o with his tools is absurd).

I wonder if Brooks Orpik could be had from the Pens though...
