Even if/when his play dips, stop and realize how much he is helping guys like Emelin, Gorges, Subban, just by being around. Hopefully that extends to Beaulieu, Tinordi, etc. You don't just plug in some other body and expect the same type of result.

Some guys you don't trade away. Guys like Markov. Also, I'm still a bit upset that Koivu didn't finish his career here.
Quoted for truth. The comparison to Lidstrom is a good one but the draftpick obsessed will not like this one bit.

Plus, Markov could be a player that plays well into his 40's, we don't know what his career span is.
