I will begin by saying, Andrei Markov is a good defenseman. I think that most teams would LOVE to have him on their PP unit. In fact, he has 40 points in his last 65 games! However, it took him 3 seasons to play 65 games and there lies the problem. He is making 5.75 million a year to make comebacks and get re-injured.
If I was a Montreal fan, I would be pretty disappointed that my club dumped that much money into a defenseman who has had some issues lately being dependable and healthy. Sure it doesn't count against the cap, but at the same time it is still money that is being spent for another spectator.
