I don't think they would've gotten the same kind of icetime. If Markov is eating up the icetime that he does, then I don't see it happening its a simple matter of arithmetic. Also please don't bother talking about how Markov would've made our team better last season because we all know this.

And actually it proves my point. With Markov we probably don't finish 15th and we don't get Galchenyuk. Do you think that we're better off going forward with Galchenyuk or with whatever we would've gotten with the 15th overall pick? We took a step back last year and landed in last spot. But in the long term we'll be better for it. Coming in 15th is not the end of the world when you're picking up elite prospects along the way.

No way they get the same kind of ice time.
