1 year - $4 million is excellent. I would assume Martin is gone.

I imagine this is the case.


I wouldn't.


Agree. If the deal was multi-year, maybe. At this point, they are both up at the end of this next season. Why would that point to Martin being traded?


Because 4 mil with still all these forwards to sign is ridiculously expensive. Money had to be freed up on defense somewhere.

Even with Nisky likely getting over paid and being gone I want to restock the shelves with forward prospects and picks for Martin. I'm willing to roll the dice on the kids and saving the money from Martin to get the forwards stronger now through FA and not get another vet D. ..... Nvm Ehrhoff

Why would he do 1 year. Maybe to get rid of the -27 on a good team?

Maybe he was told that he would get PP time and be able to build some nice FA stats?

I have to believe we will be trading Martin.

And if he does well with the Pens, he'll be able to cash in again next year.

9 million tied up to players like that would likely spell the end of Martin.

They need assets up front and he can do that. Erhoff is cheaper and you're still in the same boat next year.

I can't even begin to imagine what our PP is going to look like...

Crosby-Malkin-Hornqvist-Kunitz-Erhoff

Crosby and Malkin on the wall, Hornqvist in front of the net, Kunitz in the slot, and Erhoff on the point.

I'd rather move Scuderi first, if possible, to make that room. If you find you can't, then consider Martin.

They still have time to figure that out later, considering they can go over for now.

And way too damn long. Dude has had one year deals every year for the past five years. Has motivation issues. No reason for him to give a damn now.

I really like this move. Ehrhoff is solid. And a relatively low risk commitment while the team has young defensemen on their way up. Either Scuderi or Martin are gone. Its a really nice fit for both sides. 1 for 1 for Rutherford in my opinion so far.
