Fair enough, but I don't agree. If Markovs healthy, I think he's going to outscore Setoguchi easily on top of playing much more important minutes. To me Coyle and the first are pretty worthless at the moment, so I don't see how this makes us a better team. If you're trading an elite top 5D (though this might be the point where you disagree and our views diverge), I'd expect some sort of unique or really interesting skillset coming back. I'm not debating Setoguchi is a good player, but I don't think trading a player of Markov's caliber should garner just a good forward and two useless assets for now, that might be average in the future.
