So for those interested in perpetuating the theory that Markov has no trade value, let's let this settle it. 4th round and a prospect for a guy who was done with the Islanders and might never even play for the Flyers. Streit is a year older than Markov, finished with 27 points (to Markov's 30), had a woeful -14 plus/minus rating this year, is smaller than Markov, has never been considered a better defensive defenseman than Markov, and will likely be paid at least as much as Markov next season on a 35+ retirement contract that will stay with the team forever. And the Flyers might lose him for nothing in three weeks.

Still think no one will trade for Markov, who is a better player than Streit in absolutely every facet and actually has a contract for next season?
Plus Streit is looking for similar money to what Markov is getting, he rejected 3 years at 14.25 mil from NYI.
