As has been widely reported, Andrei Markov has signed with Vityaz Chekhov of the KHL.
Naturally, this signing leads to us to the following question.
Given Markov's lengthy injury history and still uncertain health, how do you feel about him suiting up for a team other than the Montreal Canadiens?
RDS reports that Marc Bergevin is comfortable with his blueliner's choice.
What about you?
Habs and Hockey News
- The Hamilton Bulldogs have cut 14 players from their training camp including, rather surprisingly to me, Michel Ouellet, a veteran of over 190 NHL games.
- Other than Andrei Markov, quite a few players have packed their bags for Europe, including Andrew Ladd, Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, Matt Duchesne and Jamie Benn.
- The NHL is still waiting for a new proposal from the NHLPA. Infamous rumor reporter Eklund has suggested that this offer may present a progressive decrease in player revenues, eventually reaching the magic 50% number. Elsewhere, Adam Proteau of THN has a one-on-one chat with Donald Fehr.
- Apparently, the reported deal between ESPN and the KHL is not finalized. At least, not yet.
