The most worrisome part of the Markov ordeal isn't that he won't come back. Its that when he does come back he's not going to be the same player. I'm sorry, but anybody expecting the same player he was before is out to lunch. The guy has basically missed 2 years of hockey now and is obviously damaged goods. Even if he does come back and manages to stay in the lineup he will be nothing more than a pp specialist. The days of him being a jack of all trades 20+ minute dman are long over.
The whole point of getting it scoped is so there are no further setbacks and stop the swelling. Loose bodies inside the knee caused swelling and probably was the source of the August setback.
the silver lining of this cloud is that the longer he is out, the stronger his ACL gets limiting the possibility of re-injury.
