The best hockey deals to be made out there are just that, hockey deals. Neal-Goligoski and Stewart/Shattenkirk-Johnson kind of deals. The Carter and Richards trades also are good examples. When you give the best player in a deal, more often than not, you end up losing it. Giving up Markov at this point of his career when he has expressed the will to spend his whole career in MTL and when his value ain't even at a peak would not do Montreal any good. Especially since no other offensive d-men are anywhere close to breaking in the NHL in the organisation.
Well said. You should have registered earlier
