2 things:

- The last surgery had nothing to do with the ACL itself. It's been 15 months since the last ACL surgery. If an ACL isn't solid enough to play 15 months after surgery and he hurts it again playing now, chances are he would hurt it again 7 months from now in training camp. Taking 15 months to recover from an ACL reconstruction is something virtually unheard of to begin with.

- Markov hasn't played in 15 months. This is like a training camp for him. I doubt he plays more than 12 minutes if he plays tonight. They will shelter his minutes and his impact will be limited as a result.

Still, it will be great to see him back out there!
