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.
If Markov ends up playing like he did in his prime you guys got a very nice deal . A prime Markov is worth a lot more than 2 late 1st . A LOT more !
