    forwards are about the same
    prospects are much worse
    defense is worse

    Anyone who would give Markov a two year deal is nuts. He chose to reject a one year deal at a decent amount. That's on him.

    I have no problem with this. Sentimentality has no place in contract negotiations. At the end of the day Markov is a player with bad knees on the wrong side of 30 who's asking for more money and term than he's worth. There's a reason why no other team has made him an offer. Bergevin may need a defenceman but he doesn't necessarily need THIS defenceman and certainly not at the salary and term that Markov is demanding.

    Been nice knowing you, Andrei, but business is business.

    Yeah, as much as I like him, I'm fine not bringing him back if we can replace him with someone else of equal or better talent. Or if he was willing to take 1/5 or so, I'd bring him back.

    Of course, I'm still waiting for that mystical player.

    We already have 8 NHL d-men. That's the "alternative." Spend the cap space up front, where the help is needed.

    For example? He's BY FAR the best available d-man out there. He'd arguably be Montreal's best d-man.

    Unless Markov's actually signed elsewhere, and unless Montreal's already found an alternative for him, it strikes me as kind of odd to make this announcement.

    I also find it weird that the Press Conference is happening with the Canadiens. Maybe hes staying in Russia to be with family or something like that...

    Could be an excellent pickup for the Leafs.

    Krusty is probably going by assumptions and un-confirmed media reports.
