compare players that have a similar impact. think: kovalchuk deal and so on... trading star players almost never turns out good for the team trading the star away. yes, i just called markov a star. if anyone wants to argue semantics, he's our star, arguably our best player overall and definitely our best defenseman.

my opinion on the subject is that while everybody is available for the right price, markov i think is already past his point of diminishing return in a trade. I.E., significantly more useful to us than other teams would be willing to pay for him. when you add his contribution on ice, his intangibles and his influence on the younger players, i think we'd have to be foolish to trade him for anything short of a steal which in the new NHL essentially mean untradable
