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.
I think you`re kidding yourself if you think Markov would have accepted a 1 year deal at 1.5M...and you`d also be kidding yourself if you think the Habs would of even insulted him with such an offer.

The way you want the Habs to run operations, they wouldn`t be able to sign anyone...Markov is a tenured veteran of this organization, he`s respected and the last time his contract was up, he took less than he would have commanded on the open market to stay in Montreal...offering him 1.5M on a 1 year deal would be the ultimate slap in the face, they`d be better off just telling him they`re not interested in his services anymore.

Either way, re-signing Markov was risky...everyone acknowledges that, but it was also a no-brainer, you don`t just walk away from your best player. Obviously, before re-signing him to his deal, the Habs did their homework...so you`re just going to have to trust that world class doctors know a bit more about Markov`s knee injury than you do.

It seems you have this theory that the Habs just blindly called up Markov and gave him 5.75M without verifying anything...get real man

I hope Markov can get a bit of luck on his side and avoid the injury bug, cause I can`t wait to call out those who have written him off so quickly

He can`t come back soon enough for me
