If Gainey does do anything I doubt if it will be something for a "Star" player..I expect only a minor deal but hopefully I am surprised and Gainey pulls off something than no one expects him too...
If Gainey is going to do something I'd rather he do it sooner rather than later...The team as seemed distracted since the Vinny rumors and it is almost like they expect something to happen and their minds are not in the game...Just a thought..
Probably not since they keep drafting defencemen and don't really have this huge need for Markov whereas they have a need for Kopitar.
I wasn't taking team needs into account. I'm curious as to the value of both players when comparing them to each other. Kopitar is a young franchise center with superstar potential, and Markov is a franchise D in his prime.
