Markov could never be the same player again. Markov could have to retire (extremely unlikely IMO). But Markov could come back and look the same. It's just really annoying listening to people think they have an absolute answer either way. And PS, Markov at 70% his regular mobility could still be a top 6 D man and be a monster on the powerplay. There is just really no way to know whats going to happen.

And unless Goat boy is straight up lying to our faces, Markov is going for a run-of-the-mill athroscopic surgery that countless athletes have undergone before. Think Kovalev in 05-06. He had a prior history of knee surgeries, was in his mid 30's.... seemed to come back fine that year.

What scares me about Markov is if he tears the ACL again. Then it's likely he'll just say **** it and retire.
