Markov weighing his options
Andrei Markov was one of nine members of the Montreal Canadiens to suit up for some lockout hockey at the Centre Multisports de Chateauguay last night.
The question now is: what are Markov's playing plans if the lockout drags on?
We'll let you read between the lines as you listen to Markov's answer to that question following last night's fundraiser that was put together by Maxime Talbot; a chance to lace up the skates for a good cause.
Just over two dozen NHLers took to the ice for the contest, including Josh Gorges, Colby Armstrong, Brian Gionta, Francis Boullon, David Desharnais, Lars Eller, Travis Moen and Brandon Prust.
Gionta says it's his intention to stick around, for now, but added: "the longer the lockout goes on the more you have to consider a move overseas."
The game marked the "Montreal" debut of Colby Armstrong, who was acquired during the off season.
"I was actually pretty nervous," said Armstrong. "Great hockey fans here...crazy hockey city. It was fun. It sounded like the fans were having a good time."
For the record: Team Montreal beat Team Quebec 7-4, with Markov among the goal-getters for the winning team.
