He might as well retire. Subban is our number 1 dman at age 22. Or, Gorges (a good, very hard-working player but no more than a number 4 on a good team) is our number 1. Well done Pierre.
Markov won't last more than 10 games if he even comes back at all. You can book that. The first few times he takes a hit that will be it. Like I said if he even comes back. Anyone thinking that everything is ok, is just blinded by the fact that Markov WAS a great player, years ago. He will never be the same. Move on. Times come and gone.
