Besides, the only way Markov would know if the Leafs were interested in him would if they colluded. We all know the Leafs would never do that anyways.
Where'd you read that?

There's a difference between me saying; "His rumours are so full of crap." and "Eklund is a lying piece of garbage." Obviously, the second one won't fly.
I've already clicked on this thread, my mistake is made, the damage is done, but for the love of sanity please tell me you didn't indirectly refer to Eklund as "a member of the media".

Eklund or not, there are probably quite a few teams willing to fork over the money for Markov, so I wouldn't throw such disgust at any rumour surrounding him.

He'd have to become a free agent first and foremost.

Markov has been granted with canadian citizenship. I'd bet he'd stay in Canada, be it Montreal or any other canadian team if a deal with the Habs couldn't be reached. So yeah, that's more speculation than actual "rumor" material. Then again it's Eklund, which doesn't mean **** anyway.

Perhaps Eklund is thinking the Habs will trade his rights to T.O

I think the rumor was started by Pierre Maguire. It probably has something to do with Komi doing so well since he left Montreal and Markov longing to regain his past glory that was entirely due to Komi playing on his side. It must be that

As for your question:

http://spectorshockey.net/wordpress/?p=5838

CANOE.CA: reports Andrei Markovís agent, Don Meehan, said a new contract for his client with the Montreal Canadiens wonít be signed this week, but itís possible a new deal could be in place before the entry draft, which is slated for June 24-25.

H10H, can't you ban Eklund from HF as your last action as a mod? Otherwise I could get you a list of people to ban

Good stuff.

Can't wait for the first two weeks of July to see the rest unfold.

Of course, but the people here gawking at the possibility he would leave is just silly.

I don't see why as a result of this the guy can't be called what he is, a fraud who is using people like us to make money. It hasn't been proven otherwise so I just don't see why we're allowing him to basically use his HF account as a loophole. Whenever one of the french media people post something stupid we're pretty much allowed to dedicate entire threads to the fact that this person is an idiot. Even when an HF green poster posts a bad article they're allowed to get ripped for it, but because Eklund makes an account on HF that he never uses we aren't allowed to form an opinion about him and his so-called "articles" anymore?

I just don't see why having an account on HF all of the sudden gives media people carte blanche to write the stupidest most made up stories and not get slammed for it by HF members.

See Bertrand Raymond, are you honestly telling me all he has to do to stop threads like this http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=925978 from appearing he just has to make an HFBoards account?

A line needs to be drawn between member and actual media person regardless of whether or not the person is a member. This person Eklund puts articles that are pretty well entirely fabricated just like any other site like that *********** a while back, but because he has a cult following even though less than 0.5% of his rumors are true all of the sudden we can't voice our opinion about him and his ******** articles?

I just find it very backwards and silly. You're a media person, you put your reputation on the line. You shouldn't be able to use some loophole on the biggest hockey discussion forum on the internet just to get people to stop discrediting your work. The way I see it you put it out there it's out there for people to form their opinion on not only you but whether or not your work is legitimate. What makes Eklund so special when I see tons of other threads closed because they're from bad sources? The guy has a less than 1% success rate, I think it's safe to say he isn't a legitimate source.

So basically you're giving anyone on HF carte blanche to make a site filled with fabricated lies, keep total anonymity and just say "I have sources, that makes me a legit source, I'm a member so... nobody can call me a fraud and threads using me as a source shouldn't be locked".

I just don't see how you differentiate between Eklund and all those other people, heck even some of them are members of the media who aren't considered legit sources due to their track record, but somehow this guy is????
While I agree entirely with you, Neo. You can some solace is most comments are relatively borderline on the harsh category and only the extremely vulgar or blatant flames at him specifically tend to be deleted.

Nicely said though.

In regards to the article. Yes, Eklund we know we are a front runner for Jagr. Every creditable source in the Country is reporting this. Markov to the Leafs? I believe Bender says it best...

I'd love for Montreal to sign all three but can they afford it?

3mil for Jagr
4mil for Wiz
5.5 for Markov

However the cap space is just not there. They still have to give raises to Pacioretty, Deharnais and White and Gorges. No way Montreal can sign all three.

markov was reluctant at first to come to a foreign country, turns out he loved montreal(and for good reasons, do i really need to explain why?) then wanted CANADIENS citizenship, not canadian............unless he gets a ridiculous offer, and i.m talkin' 1M$ or more at least, he's not goin anywhere............hell give him 10M$ for 2 years he'll take it talent wise the guy is worth 6 to 7 M$ a year, i dare anyone tell me he isn't one of the top 15 nhl defensemen and i'll ***** up your crack............ he's worth the risk

With the cap projected to go to 63m - Habs have approx. 21 m to spend.
Your figures add up to 12.5m leaving 8.5m for the rest.
Patch - 1.5
Desharnais - 800k
White 600k
Gorges - 2.75m
Leaving 3m to sign a goalie, Pyatt, Weber and Maybe Pouliot? More than possible.

This would give us a 24 man roster 1 or 2 more than what will carry, so a player movement would occur.
