I don't think it is most posters, just a vocal minority. Most posters realize that there is no LD in the minors who can effectively fill Markov's spot. Hainsey just isn't ready for that kind of responsibility; Gainey practically said as much when he sent him down last time. Markov also has star potential, so trading him would probably come back to haunt us one day.
