Islanders
EDMONTON, AB – NOVEMBER 30: Matthew Benning /

Matt Martin

Matt Martin, LW- Age, 28. Height, 6-3. Weight, 220. Shoots- Left

Contract- $2.5 million, UFA after 19/20 season.

Islanders fans know and love Martin, and we all wonder why Garth didn’t re-sign him, breaking up NY’s daunting “best 4th line in hockey”. His physical play provided a spark that the Isles have missed in his absence. He already has great chemistry with the team.

Martin is seeing less than 8 minutes of ice in Toronto, down 3.5 minutes from his career average with the Islanders. The Leafs rely on his physicality, but maybe they’d let their grinder go for some futures.

Michael Dal Colle- A first-round pick back in the day, maybe he has more upside than Martin?

Alan Quine- A versatile bottom six-piece with a cheap contract that expires at season’s end.

2018 3rd round pick
