Could be (5%) a rumor from his agent to get leverage. Could be (95%) pure invention from CKAC - happened before.
Anyway - the habs will make a decent offer (around and probably less then Markov's contract). He will be free to take it or to go on the free market and get probably several millions more. As valuable as he is the habs will let him go for sure.
If I were him, I'd look at the Boyles, Leaf NTCs, Briere's and Vinnys of this league and realise that a huge contract is not always the recipe for a successful career.
You can't give him more then what Markov is making. Period.
