He's clearly shown that if healthy he's even capable of 70-75 points. This isn't as far fetched as it sounds check this.

78gp 12g 52a 64pts


So basically he missed 4 games. The guy does produce pretty much almost a ppg as a D. He puts up a point 4/5 games as a D lol... actually a bit more (Referring to season above)

Imagine if he were to play 82 games and have a career year? This is the best team Markov has ever had in front of him. We actually have some potency to our line-up now. If he can remain healthy god help the rest of the conference.

I guess he figures that Habs just took a chance and didn't bother to ask the doctor.

Seriously. But when it comes to the Habs making decisions, it's always a bad one when interpreted by the media outside of Montreal. It's quite annoying but we get it; we are not liked.

Markov is a #1 D. No ifs and buts about it. Can you imagine letting him go to FA on July 1st? Offers would've been out of this world. Plus it's only a three year contract. If he plummets, we shove him on LTIR for the rest of his contract and we move on. What's not to like?

This is considered a legit article?

Guy has Ehrhoff for 10years and Tanguay for 5 as good signings...

I stopped reading after the first paragraph..

Thing is, even if Markov DOES get hurt, his cap space immediately frees up and the Habs get to replace him. As such, the risk is very limited.

This isn't even a case of a player having two bad seasons.

It's not so much that mainstream media links to fansites. It's that they don't link to the good ones, the ones that do serious analysis.

Oh, duh, just realized. Of course they don't. That would be propping up the competition and they would look terrible in comparison.

Discuss - I think he doesn't know what he's talking about, but I thought it would make for interesting conversation.
agreed the worst contract of the summer

nothing against Markov but a few points come to mind

his best days are behind him ....the chance of him being a top 10 Dman with his injuries are slim to none .....total gamble

we arent going to win a cup in his 3 years .....folks we are not in the class of the better teams in the east

the future is PK ...our next star along with price

It's not like Markov is actually paid like one of the top 10 D-men in the game, even though he is capable of playing at that level.

And how the **** are we any closer to winning a cup if we didn't sign him? Prey tell.

What's better, Subban and Markov or Subban and Brendan Nash?

Nothing here, some article but some no name 16 year old kid who thinks he knows hockey. That is one of the downsides of the internet and blogs, everyone is suddenly an expert.

Markov in 2009 before the injury was on his way to his best season ever in the NHL, pro rated to 70 points. That could have been good enough for second behind Mike Green. Season before that he did in fact finish second to Mike Green.

Habs were willing to pay Markov 5+ for however long knowing the deal. If he gets hurt in the same fashion, not much likely hood he will be returning and goes on LTIR, we sign someone else. He does not get hurt and plays all season, gets a low 45 points, we are golden.

Either way the team wins. The only scenario we would lose is if Markov can no longer skate, pass or shoot.

I've had my concerns about the markov deal I think he's getting paid too much, but that being said i'm soooooo glad he's back. But if he gets hurt on a routine hit like last time i'm gonna be pretty freaking angry

Markov was drafted & developed by the Habs and is the longest serving player on the team. He's played in this market this whole career and the Habs know exactly what to expect from him (although the injuries are a bit of a gamble)

I'd rather throw money at him than some FA who flops because he can't handle it here like so many others.

My only fear is now that he has been labelled as "injury prone" you are going to have some (insert your fav Bruin goon here) slew foot him to test out that knee of his.

Loses all credibility when he refers to Ehrhoff and Tanguay as good signings. The length of the Ehrhoff deal alone is enough to void any possibility of it being good. 5 years should be the max length of deal.

Markov has way more upside than any of the other D signings, and could potentially be a steal. Worst case scenario is that he gets hurt but we've got Subby and can sign another D. If he hurts and sucks and can't handle the minutes we're used to giving him(highly unlikely), then he still eats decent minutes and adds valuable experience in diminished role. I don't think he's forgotten how to QB a PP and... arguably he's the best in the league, based soley on the fact that our PP has been lethal with him and always ranked #1 or 2 with him in lineup.

Next

So much this. People don't seem to realize this enough.

Indeed, the fact he has a job in the industry is as such extremely surprising.

I'm very happy with Markov's contract. Yes, it's certainly a risk, but it could also turn out to be a real bargain for us. The guy is our best player and is definitely worth taking a chance on.
