Certainly appears to RT @WSpy: @ArponBasu does this confirm the Markov signing? http://*******/kwUZfN

Sounds like Markov is signed:

Quote:
Andrei Markov's Russian agent didn't deny Markov extended his contract with the #Habs. He said "I'm very happy for Andrei" via SovSport
Quote:
Markov's RUS agent added: "Markov had a few very attractive offers from the KHL. He didn't even consider them; wanted to stay in MTL."
Quote:
According to Markov's RUS agent, Andrei fully recovered from his injury and is getting ready for the season in Montreal. #Habs (va SovSport)

I would consider Markov Signed, Sealed and Delivered.

All those people who ripped Marinaro for breaking the news have some crow to eat.

Then that would include Markov's agent himself, who ripped Marinaro in an interview with La Presse yesterday.

Marinaro deserves props, hate him or love him, he does deliver most of the time.

Tony clearly has his connections.. I don't know why people deny that. Breaking news about rifts in the dressing room (Price / Markov)...breaking exact injury news...etc, etc.

Everything he hears isn't going to be 100% true, or come true...I am just happy to hear whatever he is hearing.

But I am with him on this one. His russian agent has congratulated his client in Russian print. This deal is done.

I'd be wary on the Russian story. Other than the congratulations, the rest of the quote is one that popped up a couple of days ago about Markov having offers from KHL teams but preferring to stay in Montreal.

I don't think there's much doubt he'll sign here. The question will be length and dollar amount. Until Marinaro is right about those, I wouldn't be so quick to congratulate him on "breaking" a story. It wasn't anything that really anybody couldn't have predicted.

I can't understand a GM who offers a new contract to Hamrlik but won't offer one to Jagr, and they would be roughly the same price.

But about Markov, it seems like good news. It would just be nice to add Jagr to the list.

If that were the case, I'd be on you side, but I think we should wait for the dust to settle before we start assuming what's gone on behind the scenes.

Man...I can't stress how much a healthy Markov makes this team sooooo much better.

Truly one of my favorite players to watch play

LeBrun just spoke to Meehan and confirms what I posted before.

Markov deal is STILL NOT DONE.

He will sign with Habs, we should never be doubting that, but they are still working on the term and dollar amount.

Aye but the Penguins have a phenomenal line up now with Neal likely to suit up on Crosby's wing. They also are up pretty close to the cap after they address all their U/RFAs. So it is understandably to some extent they will not commit much to Jagr. We are in a different position, lacking that dynamic forward. Cammalleri was suppose to fill this role but between his injuries and inconsistency. He has hardly lived up to the hype. Passing on Jagr would be absolutely foolish.

On another note. It seems Markov is just about signed, which is fantastic.

I want Markov for 3 years.

Everyone else wants one year, but not me.

I figure that any playing time we get out of him is high quality play. If he gets injured by another fluke play, then he'll go on the IR. I don't see him getting injured again though. It could happen but I don't think it will. I think he realizes how important it is for him to stay in shape, so he probably took every measure to make sure all of his weaknesses (knees, feet, etc.) aren't weaknesses anymore. Be it through training or braces or anything else.

3 years - 15 million. That would be awesome.

From the sounds of it the only thing left is to work out a few details. I'd be shocked if nothing is announced in the next 36 hours.

Don Meehan won't let him sign for 3 years. That would put him at 35 when he is UFA and he basically forfeits the ability to sign another long term lucrative contract.

Its either 2 years or 5 at this point. With reality leaning very heavily towards 2.

Markov still isn't signed.

Didn't Marinaro say he would be signed that day ?

No he said Markov Will Be re-signed, doesnt know what day it will be but he knows for sure it will be a 2 year contract and then he went on to say there are just a few minor details to be worked out and that "the deal is as good as done"

Actually, Markov was the one who was reported wanting 3 years.

I miss watching his # 79 creating plays, and making us way more deadly.

You guys are funny, I think most fans here predicted Markov would get re-signed. I don't think too many had doubts about it.
It'll happen. Whether it's today, tomorrow or in a week, is irrelevant.

His stretch passes are amazing. Imagine a full year sending guys like Pacioretty/Pleks/Cammy/Gionta those stretch passes all year?
