Good. Just hopefully not here.

I hate when someone comes on a board only to say "X person is an idiot".

But Michel Villeneuve IS an idiot.

I wouldn't mind Markov back on a 2-3 year contract for roughly the same money he's making now but if he wants a longer term or more money I'd move him at the deadline. MB should meet with Markov about a week or so before the trade deadline and tell him this is what he's prepared to offer and if that isn't good enough for him he will look to trade him. A rebuilding team like the Habs can't really afford to keep Markov and then risk losing him for nothing if his demands are too high for the Habs.

I still don't think Markov will be traded at the deadline and will be re-signed by the Habs.

Until then, I won't believe what media have to say. I strongly doubt they know anything. Or they're just misconstruing thins intentionally, like most of the time.
I am with you man . I also warn the internet GMs to be careful what they wish for . No team is going to give up any impact player in a swap and so it will all be up to Timmins to make something of it. Then there's the not so small matter of losing Markov - great defenseman , great pp guy , mentor , leader . Good luck with an offensively challenged team losing this guy.

Getting a first round pick for Markov would help accelerate the rebuilding. It might also help the acquiring team in he 2014 playoffs. If Markov is traded and the Habs are eliminated early I'd probably root for the team Markov is traded to. That's safe to say because I doubt he'd be traded to a detestable team in the East.

In sentimental terms it be nice to see him finish he career in Montreal however this team is going nowhere with him this year or in the next two years.

It's time for him and Mtl to be selfish, and look out for their own needs. Markov should be looking to win now, Montreal should be looking at getting assets

Was time to move him. Still time to move him. Will be time to move him at the deadline. This is actually the piece we could trade and get us some pieces for the future. Bergevin needs to come through.

Might be able to pick up a bevvy of Mid round picks too if there is a market for Bourque, Gionta, Moen and Briere.

Unfortunately our wings are so weak as it is that I cant see Bergevin being able to trade all of them. Would love it if he did.

Thing is...we will have to lose our share of games. There's no way Bergevin does that if we're still strongly in it. Unfortunately.

If we're no yo resign him, I sure hope he's traded because he'll definitely fetch us something decent.

Everybody want him gone because the coach has been coaching like an idiot and riding him like he wasn't 35 +

The guy should be playing 20 mins top but he's playing 25-26

On top of that you got our GM sitting on his hands not doing anything. Guys like Bouillon shouldn't have been re-signed.

We should've had guys like Pateryn & Beaulieu playing regular minutes this season and maybe a guy like Tinordi as well.

If we want to compete in the next 2 years, we have to sign Markov.

The 5 year plan is just Bergevin buying some time in case he messes things up like he's doing right now.

Gainey had a 5 year plan and didn't have half the pieces Bergevin has right now

Doubt Markov making $17MM between 09-12 to play less than a full season combined didn't 'taste' very good to the Habs GMs either

IF Markov is getting greedy tag a for sale sign on him and move on

I like Markov, he's been great for the Habs. Problem is, our Habs are not in anyway going to be a legitimate threat for the cup. There is no sense keeping him while we are trying to re-tool our team to one that can.

You trade him, get a high pick and a real prospect for the type of game we need to play to be a contending team.

Along with this, if there is a chance to get rid of other veterans (i.e. Gionta, Bourque, Murray, Briere) you do it.

If he want anything more then a 1 (2 is pushing it) year deal over $3m trade him 2 years ago.

Shouldn't be resigning players to 35+ year old contracts. If Koivu did nothing with the Habs and was let go, WTF has Markov done?

And to those that say we have no one to replace him, yes we do his name is PK and he's done it twice already...

Markov usually gets hurt when he goes to play for his Russian team. Good idea to trade him before Olympics.

Not that I think anything is going to come of this and as much as I despise rumours and **** like this; why Wilson?

At some point, this team needs talent. Real talent. And Burakowsky does have size. A pretty package that is needed.

Tampa Bay got a first rounder from Detroit, for Kyle Quincey.

They drafted Andrei Vasilevski at 19th overall. The person drafted before him was Teuvo Teravainen. The next three were Scott Laughton, Mark Jankowski, and Oli Maata.

Not saying every pick is guaranteed, but what I'm saying is, there's a chance.

1st + Prospect + Roster Player
