Gainey will sign asap for at least 3 years. Markov is by far the Habs most important player. As the backbone of the defense, he stabilizes the team with his presence on the ice, and he often is the difference between a win and a loss. Just look at the Habs record with him out injured.

Markov plays like a mini-Lidstrom and does a lot of unnoticeable things that make him underrated. Often, fans question his intensity, but I think it's just his workload. Our No 2 and No 3 defensemen are Souray and Rivet and though the Habs have depth, they really don't have a great defensemen to complement Markov.

Once they get another solid defender, watch Andrei sour to new limits and in the mean time he'll likely be earning upwards of 5 Mil next season.
