<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>tkecanuck341</b></div><div>You're not going to get Martinez for a 4th round pick. You're not going to get a 2nd and an A prospect for Martinez either.

Martinez is a quality 2nd pairing defenseman that can play on both sides and has substantial playoff experience with multiple Cups (not to mention two clutch OT series clenching goals). This last injury was a freak accident where his wrist got cut with a skate blade and required surgery. It's not like he's Marian Gaborik and just can't manage to stay healthy.

He's not Jake Muzzin, so he's not going to warrant a 1st round pick and two B prospects. However, he's better than Scandella and has an extra year on his contract at a team-friendly cap hit, so he's worth a lot more than a 4th. I think a 2nd and a 3rd (or prospect equivalents) is just about right for Martinez. If a team wants LA to retain half of Martinez's contract (Montreal shouldn't need them to), then the 3rd jumps up to an additional 2nd.

A 2nd and Ikonen or a 3rd and Ylonen would work.</div></div>

You undervalue Martinez, you always have. You once told me he’s nothing, but a solid 3rd pair defenseman. A return for him could be very sweet and bitter I suppose(at least for us Kings fans who appreciate him) it’s not like Toffoli or Kreider where you know what they can do, but not sure if you’re going to get it from them. With Martinez, everyone knows what he can bring and he will BRING IT. He’s all heart and will do ANYTHING for his team and you can’t put a price on that especially in the playoffs. Teams in a contending spot will overpay for him and that’s if you consider a 2nd and an A prospect an overpay which I do not.
