It means everything, unlike what you're claiming here. Insult? I'd rather insult a player than tie my hands in my back for multiple years. Too high of a risk, in my opinion of course (and I love Markov).

Also I'm pretty sure Lidstrom got a higher salary because it was some one year deals and maybe he was the one wanting this, who knows. I prefer getting Markov on a lower salary.
With an over 35 contract which will count on the cap no matter what you do, I wouldn't offer a long term contract. Two years max. If he doesn't want it, bye-bye.
