I mean the general consensus was that Gaborik was made off glass yet he still cashed in and got a 5 year deal.
The same team that took a gamble on Gaborik made Scott Gomez one of the highest paid players in the league. Copying the Rangers is not a good idea.

If someone like Sather whose team is a lost cause wants to gamble on giving Markov a tempting contract, we have to let him go. Hopefully we can work out a one year deal or a two year one at a discount. I'd hate to see Markov's career in Montreal end this way but he's a huge risk right now and we can't do whatever it takes to bring him back.
