Those that want a careful, full recovery to ensure that Markov is healthy 1,2 3 or more years down the road are in your estimation "short sighted" ? wow.

The people that demand to see if Markov can skate, hit, be the player he once was (he isn't) and are going to have tantrums until they see it now! now! now! are the ones with vision? Are you nuts ?

Markov is not replaceable and not tradeable. The team is going to live or die with this contract, and as such the team needs to take great care getting Markov back. slowly.

The urgency of the playoffs is over. The urgency of getting a good new player to help the rebuild is it's top priority now.

your personal evaluation of his abilities after 2 years of absence is irrelevent, Markov's greatest contribution to the team now is that he is healthy and contributing if and when the team turns around.

As for your beef with "Tank Nation" take your history lesson from 2001 and then realize that there are people that have another point of view that is completely justified.
He's right. We have to test out Markov this year to make sure we have our best D at 100% next season. It's too risky going into this year without seeing him play before one of the biggest summers in our history. If we go into next year and something isn't right, we go through all this again.
