Andrei Markov

Not saying he should be traded at all but if the right price comes along then I think montreal could be pursuaded to move him...

I don't think I have to sell this guy to anyone we all know what his capabilities are, he can lead a power play with ease, defend the best of forwards and has a great vision

In my opinion montreal needs either a good young top 6 forward or a combination of good picks/prospects

Flame away habs fans but i think we can get a good return for him

The habs are doing well. Markov is finally healthy and playing like he did 5 years ago, why would you trade him?

He's exactly what the Flyers need isn't he? They can start by putting Couturier on the table.

He starts his post by saying he don't think he should be traded. He's making the thread to have opinions on his value.

I didn't say I would trade him and seriously you gotta think what's gonna happen with what's coming up in the schedule 11 of the next 13 away and Markov doesn't fit into the age frame of this team, we aren't contenders for another 2-3 years and by then Markov will be 37 too much of a veteran for my taste

Not even a remote chance that happens. Flyers don't make good trading partners for Markov, they don't have the moveable assets the Habs would want. Maybe Detroit, who has more moveable vets and a much deeper prospect pool.

I guess I don't see the point. The habs look very solid and can make a run in the playoffs for the Cup. Scheduling has been in their favor, but still, they can be one of the top teams in the East.

I understand everyone wants to get younger, but any team can go on the run and trading one of your top dmen makes no sense to me if you are competing this year.

If you want to add a young winger - make a small move for D'Agostini who would likely cost you a mid round pick.

Otherwise you are looking to start a flame war with other teams.

A level prospect and a 1st would be the minimum. And thats assuming that they have fallen out of the playoff picture.....

Unless overpayment mtl won't trade him !! As a fan do I would trade him if I had the chance to.. Is value will never be higher ! With a short season and a lot of team are in the run and believe they have a chance to win so I think a lot of team would love to add him to tere own. Team !!

It will take a 1 round + good prospect ... If it not more but defenetly 1 round will be there

Agreed that kind of package would be for a situation where we absolutely had to get rid of him

As an Habs fan I would listen to some trade offers when the trade deadline comes around. Depending on the position the Habs are in I would trade Markov for a first round and a solid young forward. Some good offer I feel will come to teams looking to add the final piece to their roster. I would like to mention at least in my opinion I don't believe Montreal has a good set of forwards in their prospect pool. Adding two for the future will surely help. Plus looking at the last draft I have convinces that Habs GM will repeat with a solid pick again.

Markov for couturier ? comon, you can't be serious.

I'm a habs fan and I find it pretty ridiculous.

It would have to start with a 1st + a solid prospect

Maybe to a team in need of PP help?

Why not all Philly needs now is a goalie and they are strong strong contenders now

I think the idea was that Philly would have to add to Couturier to get Markov. That is totally rediculous. I never seen the stat sheet but prior to last nite he didn't have a point in the last five or a goal in the last 11. The Canadiens would be wise to rest Markov in the second nite of back to back games and give Weber and Kaberle a bit of ice time. The habs will be very fortunate to pick up a first for him considering his age and injury history. Imagine, Couturier plus.

It wouldn't happen for obvious reasons but Edler+ or Hamhuis+ out of Vancouver.

Because pts and goals are all that matter for a defenseman right? Markov was dynamite in the first few games and slowed down lately. He'll get back to speed soon enough. He's also 34, not 40. Flyers could get a couple of good years with him. Couturier may not start having an impact as big as Markov until 3-4 years from now.

Nick Cousins or Scott Laughton would have to be involved.

I doubt the flyers would be interested in him anyways.


More likely would be a real contender to win it all looking for a playoff boost (assuming the habs are out of it)

I like Markov and I'd happily take him on my Rangers although the teams don't match up trade wise...

Considering age and injury history I'd expect something a long the lines of what the NJD paid for Zidlicky... 2nd + quality prospect - maybe a 1st if you can get the right teams involved. (I'll never say never after Gaustadt garnered a 1st).

If you can pull off a first, then more power to ya, but some people are mentioning stronger offers than what Kovalchuk cost...

...and seriously... I mean Couturier + wouldn't happen in a million years.
