Now, is it possible that Markov turns into Niedermayer and gets better with age? unlikely. He will eventually lose another step, maybe 2. He won't be that 1st line general that he is right now. He will be a 2nd pairing (maybe 3rd) when you move him years from now. IF he stays healthy and IF he produces this season, you will never get as much for him as you would on this trade deadline season. Not to say you won't get good value if you do it next year on his UFA year, but, asking price can be a lot higher when there is 1 year left on a contract after this one.
there was not a single player of Markov calibre (not even close) traded on last trade deadline.

Just sayin'
