Especially when they're only 25, and will play a big part of your long-term solution if you get them. It's not as if Paul Stastny is a #1 center who's a rental on the downside of his career. HE'S 25...A POINT PER GAME PLAYER! #1 CENTER! Seriously, what do you geniuses think he's worth?
Regardless of what he is, we are giving up too much from our talent pool. For some reason, you just do not like Markstrom, and seems that you can just package him in to any deal for a player. He is worth more to us than he is as trade bait, thats just how it goes with young goaltenders. Regardless, Im not giving up him, or one half of our top defensive pairing for the next decade, and then some, for Stastny, its just not beneficial to us whatsoever.

We wont be contenders for a few years anyways, so there isnt a legit reason to make this trade. Tallon will get his center when the right deal comes along, which certainly isnt this one. Also, Bjugstad, McFarland, and Shore will be making their way to the team in the next few seasons, so there is no point in making this type of deal at this point in time.

We've had Luongo and Vokoun, and have gone nowhere.

It's not that I don't like Markstrom; it's just that, quite frankly, I'm tired of building the team from the net out, especially after watching guys like Chris Osgood and Annti Niemi win Stanley Cups, recently. The Flyers reached the Finals last year with friggin' Leighton in net.

The team in front of the goaltender is way more important than the goaltender, and it's clear that the Avs would want a goaltender in the deal.

Plus, it's not as if we don't have other goalies in the system who can't become #1/1B goalies one day.

The Panthers have goalies in the system not named Markstrom who could probably do a respectable job at the NHL level, playing for a good team.

They also have plenty of cap space to sign a goalie in the offseason, if need be. Craig Anderson for example is a guy who's had success before, and has liked playing here. Scott Clemmensen is another guy who can be a 1B type goalie, if need be. He's done it before.

Goalies seem to rise out of nowhere each and every year. If you put a good team in front of them, plenty of NHL goalies can stop the puck at a respectable rate.

At this point, goalie is probably the easiest position to replace in hockey, while #1 center is the most difficult to acquire.

Also, as nice as his future projects to be, fact of the matter is, Markstrom isn't proven yet. It's not as if we're trading the proven second coming of Patrick Roy.
