Do you know what is one of the most under rated things to have in pro sports....great mentors.

That is exactly what Markov will be to the young guys mentioned in this thread. Why do you think Diaz has as many points as he has? Why do you think Emelin has stepped up his game as much as he has this year? Now I am not saying that it is all Markov's doing but I am sure that it has had an effect on the both of them.

Rememeber what happened when we traded a player and their stock was at their highest? Jaroslav Halak brought the Habs Lars Eller who looks like to be a career third liner and Ian Schultz who has no NHL future. Trading high does not always work out.

Now with that being said if some team offers something that you can not refuse then you have to trade him. If Wayne Gretzky can be traded in the prime of his career than Andrei Markov sure can.
