People always bring up the Rivet trade when comparing markov and yes markov is immensely more talented, but Rivet was also only 32 while Markov is 35. Rivet was also a solid D.

Rivet also never had a history of injuries throughout his career (previous 4 seasons before being traded he never missed more than 2 games), only at the very did he have that tear that ultimatrely ended his career.

Markov has played 113 games out of 284 games (40%) in the last 4 years...this is what teams will look.

Now i'm not saying that he isn't worth some good pieces, but some poeple are going to get a rude awakening when/if he gets traded.
