Radek Martinek's trade value

Radek Martinek has been a healthy scratch, in all 8 of the Isles games.
Isles signed the vet as insurance, when Visnovsky tried staying in the KHL.

Cappy told the press several days ago, that he knew what Martinek bought to the ice, that he needed to see what waiver pickups Finley, Strait and Hickey bought.

With the team saying Visnovsky will join them on Weds, I expect Finley,who's been outplayed by Strait and Hickey to be waived. Still no room for Martinek.

MacDonald-Hamonic
Streit-Strait
Carkner-Visnovsky
Hickey

What's Martinek's trade value?

He doesn't have any until he is proven to be healthy and returned to form. I think this will be his last year in the NHL and hopefully he retires an Islander.

We are reading that teams are scratching around, desperate for top 4 d-men. Sopel who's been out of the nhl for a few yrs, has even drawn interest.

I guess when we see Martinek get several straight starts, without any injury being announced to one of the other NYI d-men, we'll know somthing's up with Marty.

Martinek may be part of roster move when Bailey is activated. Move could come tomorrow or Weds. #Isles

I don't expect to see Martinek play at all this year, if ever again. He's 36 years old, has an extensive injury history, and has not played in over 15 months. Isles coaching staff has now had a long look at him in practice. If he had anything left in the tank, they would have used him already. He will likely be waived to make room for Bailey, go unclaimed, and either play in Europe or announce his retirement.

Staple tweeting Martinek is back on IR.

@StapeNewsday

Radek Martinek having MRI today for possible abdominal injury. Seems likely he will go on IR to make room for Bailey. #Isles

Wow. The story of Martinek's career.
He's 36. I wonder if he will hang up the skates at the end of this season, try catching on as a scout or AHL coach with the isles.
