ya i agree on Markov.

However i disagree that he will become another hossa (who could still turn out the player we expect) or Chouinard, just because he starts off in the minors. Its more about character, determinatoin, and the willingness to compete. From what ive heard and read, Kostitsyn has the drive. Put that together with his talent and its hard to see him fail, although it is possible....
