And look at JovoCop's salary.

His agent will try to claw within atleast $2M of what Jovo is getting, which is $7M.

But yeah, Andrei Markov is way better than Scott Hannan, Roman Hamrlik, Eric Brewer, etc...
I didnt mean that to be comparison in anyway ... just listed some defencemen who could be in tier 1 at around 4-6 million and tier 2 at around 2-4 million. There wont many number one defencemen like Chara, Redden or Jovanovski available - but quite a few 2nd-3rd types like Markov.
