No. It just screws up the draft pick for us.

There's nothing shameful in holding out an injured player a little longer and being cautious with him. Nobody is advocating that we tell players to tank games or lose on purpose. But it makes no sense to bring back Markov early in a lost season where beating lower tier clubs (that we're scheduled to play) hurts us.

Let him continue his rehab. Bring him back with 5 games to go. Let him play in the Worlds... that makes a lot more sense. many times are you going to repeat the same point over and over again? We get it: you want the Habs to let him continue his rehab, then bring him back with 5 games to go, and let him play in the Worlds... that makes a lot more sense...TO YOU!!!

Are you going to reply to every single person who has a different opinion? Save your energy, or bring new points to the table.

Markov is arguably the best player on the team, and he's the one with the most tenure. After he's busted his a** for 2 years rehabbing, I think the organization owes it to him to let him play as soon as he feels he's ready, provided he's been cleared by his doctors. This is not only the best thing for Markov to build his confidence back, but also for the organization - for a number of reasons which you've ignored.

You can disagree with that, and you're entitled to your opinion. But please stop trying to hammer the same point across over and over again as if everybody is dense and you're the only enlightened soul here.
