Right, let's trade our #1 DMAN, PP QB and arguably our MVP, +!!!...for a 70pt player.
Markov is not only cheap and one of the best Dman in the NHL, but he's the only player to actually agree to sign at a discount price for us when he was set to become an UFA.
He clearly loves playing here and unlike all the other talkers he actually proved it, and there's absolutely no sign pointing towards him wanting out. So maybe he would agree to yet another discount when re-negotiating his upcoming contract and even if he doesn't, we absolutely need to re-sign him.

On the other side, you have a 23yo RFA that already is being hard to negotiate with apparently refusing 25M/5y.

Markov is a keeper, for so many reasons. There's only about a handful of players I'd trade him for and Bobby Ryan is far from being one of them.
