The most likely scenario is that Markov misses the mark and we end up trading Laughton for a 2nd rounder next year. However, if Markov plays 60 games (even if he's a shell of his former self) we pay Laughton AND another first.

The only scenario where we get fair value is Markov playing and looking like he did in his prime. Seems to me like that's a tough gamble for us to take.

If the caliber of picks were flopped (Mtl's conditional being a first, Flyers a second), we might be talking about getting closer to reasonable value, but I still don't know that I'd play russian roulette with the contract.
