I'm a bit divided about Markov... If he comes back and plays great it could give a boost to the team and have us finish like 20th. On the other end its better for next year if he plays a bit this year, he'll be less rusty and we'll be able to see how effective he is/can be and plan consequently this summer.

Solution? Bring Markov when he is absolutely certain to be 100%, have Blunden play on the first line with Budaj in goal and Darche on the PP.

Good, because he would have to play 30 minutes per game to save this team!

Basically, for Markov to make this team a 100 point team he would need to be worth 11+ wins over the course of a season.
100 points is a lot for this team even with Markov but I'm sure we'd be a playoff team at least. If we had a powerplay we'd have a lot more wins, and its possible Markov alone would have made it work. Has he ever been quarterback of a powerplay that wasn't top5 in the NHL? He also makes the forwards look better and is a beast at even strenght. He's also quite good in the shootout, so theres a few more wins LOL
