    May want to take a look at Markov's playoff stats last couple of tries....3Pts in 18 GP vs 10Pts in 20 GP for Weber

    Weber career playoff 0.48 PPG vs 0.35 Markov

    It has nothing to do with "falling in love" -- don't try to spin it that way. That actually pisses me off when you say things like that.

    This has to do with Montreal being worse now. Markov was and would have still been a big part of the offence.

    What does this have to to with me saying that Markov had a higher PPG than Weber last year?

    Your ability to spin things is comically poor.

Petry, Schlemko, Benn and the Jurabek guy from Europe to play in front of the best goalie in hockey. We don't need Markov and we sure as hell don't need him at $6 million over two years. What we do need is a centerman who can be the pivot on one of the first two lines. That's where Bergevin needs to spend that $9 million.

    This is a pretty bad post. Nearly all the guys you listed are super mediocre.

    LOL.

    The Cup is ours!

    Get Drouin, lose Radulov. Wash.

    Lose Sergachev, Markov, Emelin. Bring In Schlemko, Jerabek Streit. LOSS.

    Carey Price and Al Montoya in net, status quo.

    This team is worst than last years right now and this is a team that lost to the rangers in 6 while having home ice.

    It's like all montreal sport teams are trying to outdo each other in how shitty they can become.

    If you're confident no team is going to give Markov a two year deal, then why close the door? Why not leave it open for him to circle back?

    Cap space is king...last I checked 2018 playoffs don't start today or tomorrow....

    Sergachev

    Markov

    No offer for Shipachyov

    Galchenyuk on the 4th line for the playoffs

    It's transparent at this point.

    This seems more than just a contract negotiation, the org has concluded Markov doesn't fit their mold of player...

    Ironically your initial post was spin. You act like his missed games aren't part of the issue.

    They protected him by not playing him in back to backs

    He only played top line minutes after other options failed

    He was no longer on the PK

    He was essentially becoming a PP specialist who disappears in the playoffs. He was a rapidly declining asset.

    Sal loves everything Berg does.

    The Leafs should really look at signing Markov.

    Nope. His PPG being higher is fact. Not spin.

    And last I checked, we're July 27th, not June 27th.

    Who, pray say, is available as a free agent that fits our need?

    And if nobody is available, what assets do we have to trade to acquire players we can spend said cap space on.

    (Don't think too hard about it, both questions have the same answer.)
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    Agree.... It's fact left on its own without any analysis or logic applied to it. Congrats.

    Probably the only reason he's still on the team.

    But being of Belorussian heritage, 4th line, on the wing.

    Posters on this board that aren't concerned about the direction of this team have completely gone off the deep-end.
