With his injury history, I doubt anyone takes a gamble for 5 years. After 35, Gonchar was signed to a 3-year contract, then a 2 year contract. Markov will get a 2 or 3 year contract too.

I want the Habs to sign him too and would love to see him retire as a Hab, but a 4-5 year contract is way too long if something bad happens. 2 year would be the best.
