i guess the premise here is that martin is a good guy who doesn't want to make it difficult on the team that's trying to ditch him - and will accept a trade to literally anywhere.

Well, I think of it more like this... if RS and the coaches say they aren't happy with him and want to reduce his role, regardless of why he signed here to begin with and what he MAY have given up from other teams, he moves to get the role he wants. I think that's more likely than anything else. I mean, sure you could say "I'll take my $5M and play a reduced role/get scratched because I don't fit into the plans and have people unhappy with me," or if you're in the prime of your career, you take the money you already have and play in the role you want, and you sacrifice maybe playing in a city that isn't necessarily optimal.

Of course, I don't know if any of that is true, but I see it being the most likely scenario for him waving his NMC if he finds the right place. Who wants to sit on a team where they want you to be gone? Can't be healthy for the next however many years, money or no money.

Yes, Shero should talk to the Islanders about Martin...After all, the Islanders are the team that still have 3 years left of paying Yashin $2.2mill against their cap...

No joke...

Why would they? Did't affect 2001 or 2007.

$14M... up to date TO DO list:

re-sign Niskanen
pick up a 4th liner
promote Despres
go shopping with the remaining $10M+ in cap space for top 6 winger

This assumes no one else is moved.
