Andrei Markov in Court, Talks Resume, CHL Union and More

Andrei Markov - Montreal Canadiens v Carolina Hurricanes
Good AM!

Funny. The other day I was commenting on the seemingly inordinate amount of legal proceedings involving NHL figures.

Lo and behold, we can now add one more to that list, this time featuring the Montreal Canadiens own Andrei Markov.

Turns out he is suing an insurance broker whom he alleges profited from Markov's limited English for his own personal gain.

Habs and Hockey News

- Talks between the NHL and NHLPA resume today.

- CHL players have launched their own union, the CHLPA, and have named Georges Laraque its Executive Director. Not entirely sure why a bunch of 16 to 20 year old players need their own union. They seem well treated enough, get money for college and are starts withing their own communities. And they get to play hockey. No offense, but that sure beats working at Metro like I did.

- The Hockey News continues its predictions, looking at numbers five and six in each conference.

- HabsWorld offers another Fantasy Focus piece, projecting Travis Moen's potential 2012-13 performance. Speaking of Moen, don't forget to check out Sean Lloyd's profile on the player.
