Markov going home to Russia?

Markov allegedly mouthed off to the NHL Players’ Association membership during the ratification vote of the new collective bargaining agreement and threatened to return to Russia and never return to the NHL at the conclusion of his current contract.

Markov will be an unrestricted free agent next summer.

He may have pissed off a lot of teammates which is probably the reason why he was dumped for next to nothing.

this would make it a great deal then for Clarke. basically getting a 3rd rounder for a player who might not even play a minute for them is awsome.

Nashville might have to seriously overpay him to get him to stay in the NHL.

It would be just like Clarke to trade for him, or a guy just like him, at the deadline and give up a second round pick.

I do not believe anything thats says on philly.com. Why would anyone mouth off like that???
This is Clarkes doing to cover this bad trade. We lost 2 first round picks for NOTHING. We got useless Burke with 5.0 GAA last season and now we lost Markov for 3rd rounder. Like I said earlier.... DRUNK Devils GM would never make moves Clarke does. If not for scouter from San Jose that we hired 2-3 years ago Clarke & the Flyers would still be drafting Grattons Forbes and solid 4th line players who fight and skate.
enough said..

Actually, Burke had a 2.55 GAA last year at a time when the Flyers had NO other choice in the net. Did Clarke overpay? Remains to be seen. Did he have much of a choice? No.
But why let facts get in the way of an insipid argument?

Greatwhite, what are you talking about? Look at the team we have and say Clarke has done a terrible job as GM. We have one of the top prospect pools in the NHL, despite never getting a first round pick higher than #20 (and we only got as high as #20 by sheer luck). Every year we compete, every year we make deadline trades to gear up for the playoffs, and yet he still comes away with guys like Pitkanen,Carter, Richards, Nittymaki and a strong supporting cast to boot.

If he does that he'd also be saving about $1.5 million under the cap, which wold also allow you to trade for a $4 million winger at the deadline and help him fit under the cap.

Unfortunately the cap and where you stand becomes of the utmost importance at all times under the new CBA.

let's assume markov honors his current contract (one year left I think) and then bolts for russia. that would mean a fair deal for both the flyers and the preds. the preds essentially get a one year rental guy and the flyers get a 3rd rounder.

but, if he doesn't honor his deal and goes back to Russia this year, then the deal swings heavily in the Flyers favor.

It makes sense now if they were after Forsberg.
