Yesterday I noted that the Habs have resigned blueliner Andrei Markov. Today we find out that a member of the Caps organization had made a pitch on the team's behalf (or on his own) to the Russian rearguard:
Markov said his good friend Alex Ovechkin wanted him to consider moving to Washington.And by "too early" he means "never going to happen."
"Alex is a funny guy," said Markov, who smiled at a suggestion he should invite Ovechkin to join the Canadiens.
"It's too early," Markov said.
