3 years at 5 per is a good contract I think. Good price for the Habs and a good contract for Markov after his injuries. He can just concentrate on getting healthy then.

If it's something like 2 years at 6m per, I'm OK with it. 3 years is a little too long IMO.

Get it done... he still has at least 4-5 years of good hockey to give.

BTW-Markov wanted to be back for the playoffs but his doctor said no.

Markov aurait même souhaité revenir au jeu si le Canadien se rend loin en séries éliminatoires, mais son chirurgien aurait écarté cette option.

I would give him a 3 year contract.

PG is definitely worried about giving him a deal and then having Markov go down with an injury. I bet he's getting a bit of pressure from above on that one because they don't want to pay an injured players' contract. I think insurance covers only a part of the salary and the team has to cover the rest. I'm not sure though.

The Canadiens want Markov back and he wants to be back. Something should get signed soon!
Medical must be good on Markov..I would offer up 3 year - 15 million

Don't we have enough soft,overpaid players ? I'd use that money and go after a Brewer or Reghier type. Got to stop overating our players.If not we keep spinning our wheels

Habs offer 1....Meehan wants 3....Give 2 + 1 option to the Habs....

But do it. There's nobody better than him available, he loves it here, and we need him.....BUT stop thinking that he's the sole centerpiece of your D squad. You have to think he still can be reinjured....so there's no possibility you use that as an excuse next time it happens, you need to surround him better with less slow and aging players.

Andrei Markov is someone who you win with. 29 other teams in the league would be lucky to have a player anywhere near his caliber.

When I see the Habs D core next year, this is what I imagine.

- Markov
- Gorges
- Subban
- Wizniewski
- Spacek (Assuming we can't trade him)
- One of Gill/Sopel/Mara...but ideally acquire a really tough physical stay at home dman...not sure who is available, but someone with a mean streak.
- Weber

He's never been a Norris finalist,and is average at best in Playoffs. We never made it past the 2nd rd with him. FACT

Hamr needs to be there ahead of Gill,Sopel or Mara.And Spacek,but he's unmovable @ nearly $4m,which will cause us not to be able to sign Wiz

We agree to disagree then. I will take Markov on my team any day of the week.

He fits in with our style of being a transition team. His first pass and outlet passes are the best in the NHL.

We need him.

Gauthier needs to find a way to bring back Wizniewski. If he doesn't, it will be an epic failure.

EVERY year we have struggled finding a point man. First it was Souray, Streit, Schneider, MAB and now Wiz.

We have always had to make changes mid-way through the year to aquire a PP specialist. If we let Wiz walk, that will be a terrible decision, at least in my mind.

Who is going to replace him? Gorges?

I agree we need him IF healthy,and he's our best d-man. But you still way overrate him bc he's a Hab. "Best 1st pass and outlet in NHL ". C'mon

We have PK,but his contract has to be reasonable.($4m or so) i like him,but wasn't he suppose to bring some toughness. If so,I never saw it.

Well, we'll have a sophomore Subban, hopefully Emelin comes over, from there who knows. I wouldn't mind Gauthier trying to get Bogosian in the off-season, we'd probably have to give up Weber+, but I think a Bogosian type is a bigger need than a Weber for our D anyways.

Either way I hope he resigns Markov, and i REALLY hope his knee holds up.

8 year contract front loaded, 3.5-4.0 cap hit. That would be ideal. Would be moveable even when he's in the last two years. Also not too hard to swallow if he gets injured again.

Actually he's very good,but not the HOFer you seem to make him out to be. I've been a die hard Habs fan since 1970,so I've seen some great D-Men. he doesn't have the toughness or playoff success to be considered great. Like you said,we'll have to disagree on this

No option years are allowed.

Also, if he was to get bonuses, it must be a one year deal. Otherwise bonuses are not allowed.

Quote:
PERFORMANCE BONUSES

What players may earn in performance bonuses?

Performance bonuses will only be permissible for the following types of players: (1) players on entry-level contracts; (2) players signing one-year contracts after returning from long-term injuries (players with 400 or more games who spent 100 or more days on injured reserve in the last year of their most recent contract); and senior veteran players who sign a one-year contract after the age of 35.

IMO He's the best defenceman we've had in at least the last 10 years. I don't think anyone is saying he's a HOFer. However he's extremely an intelligent top 10 PPQB. He also plays on avg 20+min a game.

For years he was the glue that held the team together. You've seen all those team records with and without Markov, they show how important he is to this team.

I believe that if we don't sign him he will get many offers from teams such as Detroit and Washington and he WILL come back and bite us in the ass.

I love the guy and I feel he's gotten the raw deal for a few years now. I'm hoping next year he will have healed fully seeing as he's out for the year, zero chance of returning. Even if he comes back at only 80% of what he was, he's still a great player in the league and a top 3 D on this team.

Anytime, I really wish we keep Markov, he was supposed to be a core guy.

Habs can't get crazy with a bunch of long term deals with high $'s for Markov, Wiz, Gorges and others. Next year they will need to sign the likes of Subban and Price to long term deals.

Don't know if I want anything longer than 3 years.
I don't see how Markov and co won't ask for 5.5 or 6 million either.

We all know PG has 100% gotta look at next year's RFA's (Price) and then Subban the year after..

Lot's of $$ hasto be spent wisely.
