Right now, this is such a big gamble that really doesn't need to be made. The Flyers are a playoff team without Markov whose opportunity to advance would absolutely be bolstered by a truly healthy Markov.
That said, taking a gamble now has the potential to hurt us both this season (by diminishing our assets to fill the gap) and into the future (by costing us a year of development on a player the team likes a lot versus the uncertainty of what might be available in a year in the second round).
Maybe if he's healthy we'll be looking to trade Kaberle instead.
Looking at your roster and prospects I don't see a deal that would make sense for both teams at the trade deadline because you wouldn't be willing to give up fair value for him.
