the silver lining of this cloud is that the longer he is out, the stronger his ACL gets limiting the possibility of re-injury.
So getting his knee scoped means there will be no more problems down the road? That's how you make it sound.
How many of these "cleanup" procedures will he need? I was told all summer that he could be out for up to a year so I fully expect him back on December 8 and not after his 34th birthday.
As for Gauthier - he had an opportunity to sign a legit top 4 d-man and didn't get it done. This mess is on him. I now fear the worst that Markov will be in and out of the lineup for three - well two and a half years now - while the team struggles and continues to waste assets to fill the void. And for this year Gorges and Subban are gaining leverage for their next contracts.
Two different doctors have a had a crack at fixing this knee and to date neither one has succeeded. You could almost the first one faired better. LOL And now there is third from LA entering the picture. Meanhwile Gorges is skating around like there's no tomorrow after having the same surgery by the same doctor. TBH........I don't trust Markov's threshold of pain.
