Montreal and the Habs are very well respected by old school Russians.
But his contract expires this year. 6.5-7mil wouldnt be out of the question.

Its really up to markov. He took a paycut last time, and he might figure that this is his last chance to cash in before he gets into the latter part of his career. We've seen this happen before.

Just because you become a canadian citizen, doesnt mean that you will stay in Canada... look at nedved or peter stastny.

Whatever the case, the habs have to re-sign him... and markov knows it
