    It is so damn sad that his career with MTL ended that way. He is the best habs I have seen in my lifetime (I am 32). I will always be mad at Bergevin for how he handled him.

    The Habs better throw a big f***ing party for him.

    So...

    did he get an agent after Bergevin's comments?

    (asking true questions here)

    Since the 2000-2001 season (his rookie year), he leads the Habs in games played, assists, plus/minus and is second overall in points.

    He is also 10th overall in scoring for NHL defensemen since that season.

    Pretty good for a 6th round pick.

    Shame he didn't get to 1000. He was the best Habs defenseman in a long time.

    Enjoy retirement, General!

    If he wanted to retire as a Hab he should have taken a 1 year deal. The story at the time was that he needed to get back to Russia to take care of his kids.

    It's kind of a sad move to now say that he really wanted to stay but somehow couldn't.

    What I remember is he didn't want to take a pay cut as he had done hometown discount deals for the habs for many years, and instead of just offering it straight up Bergevin offered a contract full of performance bonuses that could bring him to that but it was not guaranteed, so he decided to leave.

    One of the best defenseman of his era and easily the best defenseman post 1993 for the franchise.

    One of the smartest defenders you will ever get the pleasure to see play.

    Markov should have accepted what was offered but it’s okay that we are paying Karl Alzner 20 million to play in the minors and to help the equipment staff.

    Class thing to do for me would be to sign him to a one day contract and let him retire a Hab.

    He was earning close to 6 million per year on his prior contract when the cap was lower than it is now.

    If any other GM offered a two year guaranteed deal to a (let's be honest) declining 39 year old D-man for close to that amount what would you all say?

    You mean the declining 39 year old D that was still our 2nd best D at the time and our pp QB? Tell me what you like more, Markov signed at that price or the Alzner contract Bergevin handed out without question on the same day??

    Would recognize his service to the Habs and that would close the books. One way or another, there will be a tribute.
