Pens unable to sweep season-series Tuesday in Montreal Follow me on Twitter @JohnToperzer -Nobody disputes that Paul Martin has talent. The issue is whether it’s worth $5 million per year.

STATS: The inevitable Paul Martin vs Sergei Gonchar comparsion

This one is tough. Gonch was an aging defenseman. He came off a not-so solid playoff ( see Travis Moen's goal in game 7) Paul Martin was the puck moving defenseman from the New Jersey Devils.

Used to be that a bad game would rattle Marc-Andre Fleury, causing him to follow it with one that wasn't much better. Not anymore, though. He proved that again Tuesday night, when he did just about everything possible to earn a victory for the Penguins against Montreal at the Bell Centre.
