    Morning Skate: Markov's time with Canadiens likely up

    Ryan Spooner and the Bruins never made it to arbitration, settling on a one-year, $2.825 million contract ahead of Wednesday’s hearing, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.

[FanRag] Former Isles captain Mark Streit returns to his original team, the Montreal Canadiens on a cheap ($700,000) one-year deal. Nice value for the Habs. Streit is coming off that big four-year deal that was a little too long and rich for the Isles. [HEOTP] Jesse Graham, left unqualified and thus allowed to walk by the Isles this summer, has landed with the Avalanche. [FanRag | Soundin’ Off] Here’s the Associated Press version of Kyle Okposo’s return to health. And to complete the ex-Isles updates, apparently there is no clause
