Marky is not going to get anything significant with a contract until he shows something at the NHL level. If he establishes himself as a starter and posts a .910 save percentage and is over .500, then he'll get maybe a 2 year deal worth a couple million, but given his injury troubles, mediocre stats, and inconsistency, he's not yet anywhere close to the point of becoming a concern to sign.

I think he accepts a qualifying offer or something just north of that on a 2 year deal. He really has almost no leverage yet.
