The doctors have said the surgery is needed to repair torn ligaments that have kept Markov out the past six games. He's still hoping to rehab the knee without the procedure, which would all but end Markov's season. He is concerned because he's in the final year of a contract which pays him more than $5 million a year. He'll turn 31 on Dec. 20 and he was looking forward to signing a rich deal which would take him to the end of his career. He fears the Canadiens -- and other teams -- will be reluctant to sign him unless he can show he's healthy. There are concerns about his health because the latest injury, which was the result of a knee-on-knee collision with Carolina's Eric Staal, is the third major injury Markov has suffered in a 13-month span. He missed the first third of the 2009-10 season after he tore a tendon in his leg when it was cut by teammate Carey Price's skate in the season-opener. He injured his knee against Pittsburgh in the playoffs and had surgery which forced him to miss the first 10 games this season.

Not quite sure who comes up with this but for those of you that have Yahoo Fantasy Hockey pools maybe you have a better idea of who writes these things.
