Consider the cases we have of players who came back after really long-term absences. Patrice Bergeron. Saku Koivu. Even Mario Lemieux (proportionately of course!). All very cerebral players who missed a very long period of time on very debilitating injuries, and yet came back near their previous level.

It might not be immediate, but there's certainly reason to believe Markov will recover even from a long absence.
None of those guys were 33 years old , Markov will have missed 35 games this year, 75 last year and 37 the year before that, he will be like a player coming out of retirement, some guys miss a couple of weeks of training camp and they need months just to make that up Mr Markov wont be 100% till at least next season
