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.
I think it has been made obvious that he is done his rehab...

I can't believe your motive for keeping him off the ice is so we can finish lower in the standings. What's wrong with you? The guy has been rehabbing for essentially two years. He is DYING to get back onto the ice.

And you're holding him off the ice for stupid, selfish reasons that aren't even a sure thing. Not to mention the draft itself is just a damn lottery anyways.
