We can't trust this guy to be healthy. It's that simple. Plan around him and hope for the best. If he plays 82 games you're that much better. If not, you're prepared. We have to assume that he's going to be hurt. We should've done this a long time ago.
Agreed, Gauthier's mistake was not to sign Markov. His mistake was to not have a backup plan. I would have re-signed Markov, Hamrlik and Wisneski. Like that it would have had offered us the depth to compensate for Markov while he is out (turns out it was over 80% of the season) and we would have had assets to trade away once he get back (Wisnieski would have pulled in at least the 2nd round pick we offered to acquire him).
