- The Penguins have made an official offer to defenseman Danny Markov. (2 yrs – 5.4 million) I have been told Markov is considering the offer but appears to be leaning towards returning to Russia. According to an anonymous source who comments frequently here at the Buzzontheburgh, Grossman is trying to get Markov to accept the Penguins deal and says the deal is similar to Sydor’s offer. The source also goes on to say Markov is very close to signing with Vityaz Chekhov for one year.
- Potential Suitors for Markov: Boston appears to be out of the picture due to cap reasons. Detroit has moved on. Eklund is reporting the Sharks are interest but my sources have said the Sharks have “absolutely no interest in Markov.” Columbus is very interested and has made a offer but it is believed Markov is not considering their offer.
