Yes, but that contract was directly negotiated with Charles Wang. Snow had to sign DiPietro to the deal in order to get the job, pretty much.

Frans' first contract was a similar situation to AMac's also which was another absolute steal. The Isles took calculated gambles and they paid off. Frans' new contract is another good contract too. I figure AMac will fall in line when his current one expires. Snow has been really good in this facet. Other than DP, there are no really bad contracts on the Isles.

One or two way contracts have no bearing on whether or not a player has to be put on and clear waivers when they're sent down.

The contract they signed Martin to is very good. Isles fans should be quite happy with this.

Whats even better is I have both on my keeper fantasy league...which uses a salary cap similar to the NHL

Did someone call the Police? Cause this is highway robbery

Seriously, 1 million a year? If there is one thing I can't get on Snow's ass for, it's the fact that he has negotiated some great value contracts the past couple of years. I can't really think of one bad contract on the team aside from Rick D3P0

Not sure why his agent advised him to sign that.

I don't know either. Maybe he made the decision on his own.

I have plenty of issues with Snow, but he is absolutely fantastic at resigning his own players to team friendly contracts. Love that Martin is here for 4 more years.

Martin is a more valuable player than a lot of guys make twice that salary.

Don't get me wrong here. Matt Martin's a fun player, he hits everything in sight, and is responsible defensively and kills some penalties, but this is still a guy that hasn't cracked the 15 point mark in two full seasons. He's a 4th liner. He's an awesome fourth liner, but still a fourth liner.

He could have gotten maybe a little more, but I don't see a guy like him being worth much more than 1M per or this contract being a steal. He's good, he'd run through a brick wall if the team asked him to. But he's still a limited player that is what he is.

I definitely agree, but I also see him as the kind of guy that can top out as your ideal 3rd line winger who can chip in 10-15 goals while hitting everything in sight and killing penalties. He's only going to get better and better, the guy has the heart of a lion.

Is he eligible to go to the AHL to maybe develop his offensive game?

Makes sense for both sides. I think with all the uncertainty MM went for the longer term deal. Plus 4 million for the average Joe is a pretty sweet salary for four years.

Add in the fact that he's a bruiser and could have his career ended on any of his 300 + hits throughout the year and its beginning to look like a no brainer.

Signs just long enough to become a UFA and then sign with his childhood favourite team and team closest to his hometown... Detroit

Unless I'm mistaken, they're all eligible to play, but AHL teams need a minimum of 13 development players, 12 of which have played less than 260 pro regular season games at the beginning of the season (source). Martin has 153 NHL + 83 AHL = 236 pro games under his belt so he still qualifies as a development player.

That's a very good contract. He's one of the best 4th line players in the league and I hope to see the Isles make the playoffs within a few years because he seems like he's built for playoff hockey.
