Why sign a player who was only going to start in December? I truly do not understand that thought process whether it's Markov or not.

Gauthier's moves or lack thereof indicate he thought Markov would be back. No Hamrlik. Sign Woywitka. Campoli's signing seemed really reactionary to me.

I don't know how credit these guys are but I've ever, ever have seen anything in print that says Markov would be back in December. Just a bunch of mumbo, jumbo comments that it can take up to a year to recover from ACL.

Markov himself said he'd 100 % ready. Why did he say that? In the article........

It's no surprise that Montreal is looking for help on defense given that Gauthier never expected Markov to miss the opening month of the season when he signed him this past summer.
I never saw those interviews so I never expected him back anyway at this time.
