Habs continue to talk with Andrei Markov

According to Richard Labbe of La Presse the Montreal Canadiens met with Markov’s agent Sergei Berezin recently and have resumed contract talks. Berezin expects to meet with GM Marc Bergevin next week to continue to discuss the future of the 35 year-old veterans career in Montreal. Berezin remained optimistic and confident that the two sides will get a deal done before July 1st.

I am optimistic in this case, for the simple reason that I feel that the team wishes to Andrei and because Andrei wants to remain with the team.”

“We must not forget that the Canadian season has just ended … As I said, I am optimistic for the future,” said Berezin.
