Report: Markov and Habs have discussed a 3 year deal

According to a source Andrei Markov and his agent Sergei Berezin along with Marc Bergevin and his staff have discussed a contract that would keep the 35-year-old veteran for another 3 seasons with the Habs.

A 3 year deal between the two sides seems to be the middle ground on these contract talks as the Habs were only offering a 1-2 year deal while Markov was looking for a 4-5 year deal. There has been no official word of a formal offer from the Canadiens of a 3 year contract, although it is something that has definitely been discussed over this season.
