So in this situation, there's no way anyone, including the Habs, offer him a 5 year contract for 5-6 millions/year.
If Gonchar gets 10mil/2yrs at 39 from the nearly-tax Dallas Stars, Markov's agent is going to want something similar. And Markov deserves it, he's a great defenseman and should retire a Hab.
