Andrei Markov's next contract?

Still a little early, but I'm already thinking about Markov's next contract. Next season will be the last on his 4-year deal, and that contract is looking like a bargain.

If he continues playing like an elite d-man, I can easily see him getting 7 million per season.

I would definitely extend him for another 4 years..but I wonder if it'll be hard to lock him up, considering Cammalleri, Gomez and Gionta are all making big bucks. Not to mention Price will need a new deal.

Hamrlik's contract will be up at the same time, so that will save some cash. Even if we do re-sign Hammer, it more than likely won't be at the same amount he's making now. And if you have to choose between them, we all know who the obvious choice is. Plekanec obviously needs to be locked up as well.

Anyways, losing Markov is a scary thought. He seems to love playing in Montreal, so I'm going to stay optimistic that something will get worked out.
