Do you honestly think that Markov stays for a 1 year 1-1.5 mil/year?

If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.

There is a big difference between a guy like Markov who has had crappy luck with injuries(like getting cut by your goalie's skate and missing half a season) and a guy like Benoir Brunet who missed like 300 games in his career to 25 or 30 different minor injuries. Before his current streak of bad luck he played an average of 75 games a year his first 6 years in the NHL.

If he was on the UFA market I'm sure he gets at least what the Habs offered if not more. Then what does PG do, sign Wisniewski? Come on now...
