It makes no sense to throw 5 mill at a guy who has had 3 major injury in the space of 12 months.

That being said, I love Markov as a player and hope for the best.
You can say 2 injuries. Don't see how him getting a tendon slashed by a skate make him fragile in any way. His knees could become fragile, we should wait for the official results to come out first.

But why would you want Bieksa?..I don't get the love for him around these boards. As a trade this year, perhaps, depending on the asking price, but next year I'm not so sure.

There's many other more interesting UFAs. Erhoff, Kaberle come to mind. Brewer, Jovo, Pitkanen could be others. The list goes on. I'd love to land Ian White as well. This guy doesn't get a lot of mention but he's solid and might come cheap if he doesn't re-sign.
