    Rangers Attempting to Acquire Matt Martin's Contract from TOR

    That $11-million in space doesnít include the fact that the Leafs are in the process of trying to move Matt Martinís contract, potentially Iím hearing to the New York Rangers. Replace him with a depth player in the million-dollar range and their cap space increases to around $12.5-million.

    From what I've been told it's probably Martin for an asset. Be that a pick or prospect.

    I'm A-OK with Martin. Two more years at $2.5 million. Get a prospect with him, too. Martin addresses the character hunt to a tee and expiries just as soon as the Rangers need to be a serious team again. It's win-win.

    I like it. Preferred this over Reaves, and when you look at the cap dump the Pens made to Buffalo this could be a cheap/profitable deal.

    I think the Leafs have leverage. I think we'd give up rather than get in terms of assets.

    So we would have to give up a player or a pick for him? Hell no.

    Yeah, it's one thing to take on that roster and cap space in FA. Yet, to give up a decent asset for a guy who shouldn't be in the lineup every night is a whole nother issue. We are being used again, this time by a team instead of a player. Let's not help Toronto free up cap (or get an asset back) just so they have more room for either their pending big contracts or Trouba.

    We must be out of our minds, Martin should be getting us a prospect. Not the other way around.

    Yeah, the idea is to take advantage of them, not the other way around. But it also depends on the complexity of the deal.

    I would be fine giving up a late round pick for him, but definitely not a good prospect/player.

    That was my hope as well. Martin, prospect or pick for like a 4th.

    We should just trade for Brenden Lemieux.
