I FULLY expect the Habs are going to show him the same loyalty when it's time to negotiate a new deal, he'll likely get less money than he would have, but I fully expect the Habs and Markov to reach a new long term deal at some point.
You mean the same Habs that gave Plekanec a 1 year deal, Price a 2 year deal? Different circumstances but regardless.

Business is business, class has nothing to do with this. I'm not discounting Markov's work ethic to get back into the line up. I LOVE Andrei Markov so don't try and make it seem like I don't want him back.

If he can't play minimum 65-70 games a year we are going to have to find another Top 4 defenseman who can log 22+ minutes a game. This is a fact.
