Two year deal for Habs Markov?

According to Tony Marinaro fo the Team990, the Montreal Canadiens have come to terms with defenceman Andrei Markov. The deal is figured to be for two seasons at $11.5 million.

Neither the Canadiens, nor Markov's agent, Don Meehan have confirmed anything. Meehan did say that he would be talking with Habs GM Pierre Gauthier, during the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, this weekend in Minneapolis.

While Marianro does not speak for the team, his track record on Markov, like it or not, has been pretty bang on. It was Marinaro who reported his contact learned of an altercation between Markov and Carey Price following a game against St. Louis in 2009-10. Though the team played it down, the general consensus later deemed that the incident did occur.

He and also broke the story that the Russian rearguard was out for all but seven games of the 2010-11 season, following a collision with the Carolina Hurricanes Eric Staal.

Over the course of the last two injury-riddled  seasons, Markov has 37 points in 52 games.
