Well, it's pretty easy and should be a no brainer:
Who will be our top 2 offensive D for the next 3 years:
Pick one, not other alternative unless there's a major trade.
Is Beaulieu or Diaz able to replace Markov? Not even close.....
Or we could save that money and go out on the UFA market and get one of these great offensive D, hope he wants to come to MTL, give him a gigantic contract cause 29 others teams will want him.....NOT a good idea.
Markov will be 35 years old....not 38 or 39....
Some will think he should come cheap because of his injuries.
But his 40 points in his last 67 games since coming back means something.
Since he will be the best offensive D available next year in the UFA, he sould be paid accordingly. He won't take a paycut in these conditions, it's a non-sense!!
I think the price will be 4 years at a gigantic $6 millions/year.
Would i be willing to pay that price?
I would....no better options in the near future!
Markov - Subban for 4 more years, no problem with that!!
