It is definitely high-risk, all things considered but he's just such an amazing player that you have to decide whether it's worth it or not.

I wouldn't want to trade him from MTL, but with the rebuilding going on, if we could get at least fair market value, it might be the smarter thing to do.
oh for sure. kindl plus extras would never get it done, i shouldn't have thought, unless the extras were our top prospects. flip is coming off a career year and i wouldn't really want to give him up, but in terms of fair value, he may be the only piece that gets it done. we also need a d (or 2) badly now, whereas if we could get semin or doan the flip becomes more expendable. i wouldn't be surprised to see flip, franzen or both dealt in the right situation.
dunno that markov would be the right situation, but if it happened i'd expect a deal based around flip.
