Thank God, Martin sucks and is the worse player on the Pens
Well, he did play terrible in 2012 and all the criticism he got was deserved, frankly. That's also why he was approached in the off-season by RS and asked if maybe he wanted to go somewhere else. I credit Martin for getting committed and improving his conditioning and effort this year and becoming the player that the Pens thought they were acquiring in the first place, but that doesn't mean he didn't suck last year and didn't have a compete level of a scrub.
I really applaud the guy this year and him assuming a top role on D as he should have and playing his best of his career. It's not good at all for the Pens that he's out for a while.
That doesn't mean he wasn't pathetic last year because he sure was.
