From Eklund, just posting it here.

This I swear to you all is 100% accurate. At the player's meetings to ratify in Toronto, Markov stood up and said, "This bleeping deal sucks and I could make more money in Russia. I will never sign another NHL contract again."

I heard this from at least ten players today. Clarke knew this as well...

If any of you know any players who were at the meetings in Toronto, please ask them and confirm this, before you slay me once again (have to register first to see it, most likely)

Even if it is true (wouldn't surprise me in the least bit to hear Markov say something like this) I doubt Markov would hold to it. He's just a very emotional guy and it's not like a ton of other players didn't say the same things during the lockout.

I hope we didn't trade him over something dumb like this (if it's even true of course.)
