But not though.. compared to last season Holl is far more valuable now that he is a hockey player and not a hockey practicer. 43 games played, 16 points (.37P/PG) and is a +15, he may take a few too many penalties at the moment but the kid has only played 53 games in the NHL. This is practically his rookie year, he has played well, primarily in a more shut down type roll (him and marincin staring against the oilers.. Kinda OOF) but he will only continue to develop in the NHL.
I agree with a bunch of the above posts, Marty is an 8th D man, ideally the only way he gets into the lineup is if we have 2 guys on D injured. He will make it through waivers, contract can be buried, cap hit will be less than league min next year, wheres the fire?
I understand the distaste for the guy because he may as well be using a shovel when he has the puck, but as a depth guy who may play 5- 10 games a year at most, dependent on the off-season defensive restructuring, isn't a bad of an extension. He is essentially a Marlies call up in a pinch.
