It was dumb on your part. And like I said... relax.

Mgmt won't do it if we're even close to the playoffs much less a top seed.

If we trade Markov now, we put tons of pressure on the returning Subban to produce in the offensive zone. You can also waive goodbye to Diaz's production. We got lucky with how Gorges and Pac turned out to be, and I'm not saying it can't happen again, but the risks are much more higher with a potential Markov departure.
No doubt the risk it greater but so is the reward. And let's not forget that Markov's knee represents a risk on its own.

Markov being a mentor is great, no doubt about it. But it's not important enough that you turn down a great deal that would benefit you in the long run.
