Trading Markov?

Playing with Russia in the World Championship confirmed Markov was not seriously hurt and had only himself to blame for his awful play in both Rounds of the playoffs.

If the Habs seriously want to aim for the Cup in 2009, Markov showed he cannot be counted on as a dependable No. 1 defenseman in the playoffs. As the saying goes, “when the going gets rough, the rough get going”. Markov did the exact opposite, putting on a disappearing act when the play got rougher this Spring, which cannot have gone unnoticed by the Habs’ brass…

So we cannot rule out that a wild card scenario has the Habs signing guys like Redden and/or Orpik, then trading Markov for offensive help. Curious what he would fetch?

Really???

Really????

Brooks Orpik/Wade Redden to replace Markov??

Price was bad against Philly.... we should sign Marc Denis to be our #1 goalie and we can trade Price for offensive help

I can already see this thread is going places.

Can't wait to see the quoted proposal so I can laugh.

Good thing the Wings traded Datsyuk and Zetterberg, they would have never won with them.

Someone here said he was forced to play for Team Russia. He wanted to decline but the coach told him he could forget the olympics if he didn't accept the invitation, or maybe another event.

Why don't you look at our record with Markov out of the line-up injured. Then come back and apologize.

Love this thinking. Trade Markov and sign Redden instead. Then maybe we could move the team to Laval and put dog racing in the Bell Center instead. It's what Harold Ballard would've wanted.

Sheesh.

Trade Hamrlik for some tube socks as well. We don't really need them, but we'd be getting them for a pretty cheap price. And then we could trade Kovalev and Koivu to make the cap room for Smolinski.

I'd think of some more different proposals that could help this team, but there's a hamburger knocking on my door asking if he can eat me, so goodbye, folks.

That was just speculation. A lot of us, me included, think that's probably what happened, but it's not exactly the kind of thing the Russian Federation would put out a press release about, you know?

Well, knowing how much the Russian Federation care about the Olympics and any kind of world event, wouldn't it be dumb to make that kind of threat against maybe your best D-Man ? I mean, maybe it would be alright to do that with a guy that you don't really care about but with a key player like Markov ? I don't know, it just seems very unlikely to me... Maybe there was pressure but this kind of pressure ? I don't know, my reaction if I was him would probably like : Ok whatever, I'm sure you'll miss me more than I miss you.

What baffles me most is Redden being held up as some kind of replacement. Him with all his playoff prowess.

Also, him playing in the World Championships, doesn't that kind of prove he can win? Given you know, they did win and all.
