RDS is reporting that the Habs have offered Andrei Markov a 4-year deal worth a little more than $5 million per season. They are also reporting that he will not need surgery on his injured knee.
I am not a fan of the French media, as they tend to be rumor-mongering fools. So take this with an absolute grain of salt. RDS is a pretty big outfit that is tied to TSN and ESPN, so I find this bit of news mildly more credible than any other French media outlet.
In case you've forgotten, the Hamilton Bulldogs will be playing tonight at 7:30 EST. They are up 3-0 in the series over Chicago and are looking to return to the Calder Cup Finals for the first time since losing to the Houston Aeros (Minnesota Wild affiliate) a couple of years ago. I am sure the game will be broadcasted over the internet. Unfortunately, the Bulldogs announcers are biased idiots, so you'd be better off listening to the Chicago feed, if available.
