Markov obviously lost some mobility. He isn't the Markov that completely shut down Joe Thornton in the playoffs. If we're out of the top 8, then we have to trade Markov at the deadline. If we can't make the playoffs, it means we're still rebuilding and we need all the help we can get in the form of picks and/or young players. Markov would be extremely attractive to a contender with PP problems (or any contender, really).

If we make the playoffs, then it depends on his year. I think Markov can still play at a high level given he doesn't get banged up anymore than he already is and plays slightly less at 5v5 (which would require a stronger D-depth than we currently have). A 2 year deal would be feasible.

I would rule out an extension at this point though.
