The return probably won't justify actually pulling the trigger but at least at that point you can say it was better than nothing.

I mean, if they do wind up trading Letang mid-season and need to get a PMD rental for the playoffs, and if Markov is healthy, and if he fits comfortably under the cap, sure, but for nothing higher than a third round pick. No way in hell is he worth a top prospect and a first rounder (even a late one).
jesus, you replace letang's production with markov's for less money(2013-2014 ONWARDS).. how is that so hard to understand? forget about how old he is, you have to look at from a production standpoint, hes still gonna be producing well for the next 3-4 years. no **** this is a downgrade from your current team but thats because youv've been ****ing paying letang 3.5M, BRO LET ME BREAK IT DOWN FOR YOU. MORE MONEY TO LETANG + MALKIN = WORSE TEAM BECAUSE YOU HAVE LESS MONEY TO SPEND ON OTHER PLAYERS!

PENS STRENGHT = PMD D-MEN, BUT HMM THEYRE AT LEAST 2-3 YEARS AWAY FROM PRODUCING AT A DECENT LEVEL, WHAT TO DO IN THE MEANWHILE WITHOUT SHELLING OUT 7-8MIL TO LETANG SO CROSBY DOESNT HAVE TO PLAY WITH A 4TH LINER(ESPECIALLY BECAUSE WE HAVE TO RESIGN KUNITZ AND SUTTER)? MAYBE FIND A CHEAP ALTERNATIVE THAT WONT DECREASE OUR CHANCES OF WINNING A CUP
