WHAT WILL THE PENGUINS DO WITH PAUL MARTIN?
Do the Penguins play the season out with Paul Martin and let him leave for nothing, like they've let some many others do, or do they trade him at somepoint this coming season for immediate help or long-term assets?
That's the million dollar question GM Jim Rutherford will have to answer as the chances are extremely unlikely that Martin will commit to resigning with the Penguins before testing the market next summer.
The talk around the Penguins this week is Martin's not happy with the direction of the team after taking less money to sign with the Penguins in 2010 for what he felt at the time was the best opportunity to win Cups.
Martin passed on a more lucrative deal that summer from the Los Angeles Kings and four years later, the Kings have won two Stanley Cups and 10 playoff series, while the Penguins have won just three playoff series during Martin's four year career with the Penguins.
To be honest, Martin isn't the only big name on the team not happy about what's been going on with this organization.
