Red Wings' Markov negotiating with Salavat Yulayev

Danny Markov

Having reportedly spurned a $2.5 million offer from the Detroit Red Wings, free agent defenseman Danny Markov is said to be weighing a hefty contract offer from Salavat Yulayev of the Russian Super League, according to the Russian site Sports Daily.

Salavat Yulayev's offer to Markov is said to be the same contract the team gave to Alexander Perezhogin and Kiril Koltsov-- $1.7 million, which as pre-tax dollars would equate to more than the $3 million Markov is said to be seeking from the Red Wings.
