Even the point of the arthoscopy was to look at the graft to ensure its intactness, just undergoing arthoscopy will involve a recovery of a few weeks.
Don't need any more histrionic speculation about this, and idiots claiming that Markov should retire.
It's probably just to clean up a little fluid and scar tissue, which would be "floating" around in his knee and causing some pain/aggravation/swelling. If it was the playoffs Markov would probably play today, but the coaching staff seems to have gained faith in the young d-men the past few games (Diaz, Emelin playing well) and hopefully Campoli and Spacek are closer than we know.
As much as it sucks to hear, the longer Markov waits to come back the better. His knee should only get more comfortable. The last sentence of your post is perfect.
