- 42 had 47 points (0.61 PPG)

Adam Rotter: To me, everything with Marty comes down to the cap hit and the number he is willing to play at. They could possibly go down the road of a low base salary and incentives that would count against the cap the following year or they could just go with a low cap hit. He can't be on the Rangers next year at anything close to what his cap hit currently is at $5.625 but if it's around $2 million or so, I think they could make it work. Marty wasn't great in the playoffs but I still think he has a lot of value to the Rangers as a leader and a secondary scorer, but he has to take a big pay cut to make it happen.
