@Real_ESPNLeBrun: Habs announce three-year deal with Andrei Markov. One year more than I would have guessed.

From the Canadiens:


MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier announced today the signing of defenseman Andrei Markov to a three-year contract (2011-12 to 2013-14). As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“We are very pleased that Andrei has made the decision to pursue his career with the Montreal Canadiens. A player drafted and developed by our organization, Andrei brings a high level of talent and leadership to our team. We look forward to having him back in our lineup for the start of the upcoming season,” said Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier.

Markov, 32, completed in 2010-11 his 10th season with the Canadiens in the NHL. The defenseman registered three points (1 goal, 2 assists) in seven games. He served four penalty minutes and maintained a +2 plus/minus differential, while averaging 22:54 seconds of ice time per game. Markov suffered a season-ending injury to his right knee on November 13 against Carolina.

Since 2000-01, Markov has registered 366 points (81 goals, 285 assists) in 623 NHL regular-season games. The 6’0’’, 209 lbs defenseman has recorded 361 penalty minutes and maintained a +31 plus/minus differential. Markov has scored 41 of his goals on the powerplay and two on the penalty kill. He has accumulated 18 points (3 goals, 15 assists) in 49 career NHL playoff contests.

A native of Voskresensk, Russia, Markov was the Canadiens’ sixth pick (third round, 162nd overall) at the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He was part of the Russian team at the 2006 Torino and 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.


The deal is apparently worth $5.75 mil / year.

Looks like Wisniewski is probably a goner.

Is Markov worth $5.75 million a year? I don't think so but good for him and Montreal :thumbup:

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

He'll probably only play 100 games over the next 3 years. When he's healthy, he's a force to be reckoned with. Too bad he's never healthy.

Instead of making a new thread everytime there is a signing I thought we could post all the signings in this one.

I will start it off

Damn I would have liked him in a Wings Jersey, decent deal for them, he was a good during the post season for them.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

Scratch Markov and Brewer off the list for potential Red Wings signings.

Good idea for the thread. We should make a similar one for trades as well.

Good for Tampa to look Brewer up, he's a stud. This team is such a bright future.

Signing with the Habs was probably his safest bet...Had he gone elsewhere, and spent much of the 3 years on IR he'd be public enemy #1 where as in Montreal - it's expected.

I really think he is the most logical option. Bieksa I like too, but it's looking more and more like he is going to re-up with the Nucks.

From TSN:

The San Jose Sharks once again signed a key player before he could test the free agent market, agreeing Thursday to a US$9 million, three-year deal with forward Devin Setoguchi.

We should have a separate thread titled "ROFL signings".

We'll start with the Bryzgalov signing.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Looks like Devin the Diver is gonna be denting more ice for a while....

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

lol. So you'd have paid that much for a guy as injury-prone as Markov?
