Markov knew just as well as anyone that his career could potentially be over after the next shot to his knee, so there's no way he going to accept a low-dollar, one-year deal.
Besides, what you see as "reasonable", Markov and his agent see as "insult
Unfortunatly not just for Markov it is the way it seems to be in pro sports which also leads me to believe there will be another work stoppage with the PA having Fehr running things for them.
On topic though as for Markov accepting the deal for a one year term like I said if he truly is eager to continue his tenure in MTL it may have been something he considered who knows if PG even offered it especially considering his injury.
