I mean the general consensus was that Gaborik was made off glass yet he still cashed in and got a 5 year deal.
I think that Markov, like Plekanec, like playing in Montreal and from what I know of Markov, he doesn't like change much. Montreal also has a good core of players and some good prospects. I don't see why Markov wouldn't want another go at a cup in Montreal before playing elsewhere. So I expect Markov to be the one to be softer at negotiations.
