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.
Well, then you wouldn't get him for Laughton and a potentially late 1st. Not even remotely. Markov at his best is worth much more than that.
