that's my 2 cent.
Yes, it depends on the package but a team will have to overpay for him.

Markov is still the second most important player on the team after Subban. People here underestimate his impact because apparently he is "old" and "slow" but take Markov out of the lineup and see the result. The team would not be in second and Subban would not be a PPG defenseman right now.

Nobody comes close (even Subban) to Markov's ability to retrieve the puck from the opponent and take it out of the zone.
