The Habs signed him out of respect and in hope he will be OK. The Habs believed in him. If it does not pan out, well too bad. They still behaved in a respectable way with a start player and for that reason, other star players notice. That becomes important for potential UFAs. If Markov does not come back it does not affect the cap or progress of our other prospect Ds.

Before you start with the your surgeon must have been horrible I will end that discussion and tell you I have had the same surgeon that did Stevie Ys knee and the big Es and Hacketts knee just so you know. I attend the Fowler Kennedy clinic up at UWO for all my work. I don't care who is paying him our management signed him to this stupid deal that is my issue. I mean come on that long off the ice and we give him 5.75 a year for the next 3 seriously I want some of what they are smokin cus it must be damn good. I stand by my assesment that if he was truly wanting to come in and prove himself and we were keen on signing him sign him to a year at the alloted rate I suggested I know it may have been more but a year gives us a decent baseline to see where he is at then re sign him after that to some additional years it isn't rocket science and I am sure if Marky is sincere about being here he would have agreed.

If it was 5.75 OVER three years rather than per season I could see that but not at a per season rate it just seems silly honestly.

LOL @ you calling me a fairweather fan too funny. I have followed the HABS since the 60s so I dare say anything but fairweather or bandwagon fans silly comments when you know nothing about the person you comment on.
