Guy has barely played any hockey in 2 years? Were you expecting him to be getting his strides back this quickly?

I thought a realistic time frame before really judging him was a full season, not a handful of games...

To be honest, I'm actually impressed with Markov.

I've been injured myself from the sport I practice. Back problems, broken collarbone, just being out a month take a big toll on your body and sets you back a lot. So, 2years off? I'm not surprised Markov is lost. It was expected.
Be patient man, he'll improve again as long as he stays healthy, you'll see.
I don't think it's too early to pass judgement on how he's played, no. As I said, he could turn it around but he hasn't looked good in my eyes anyway.

Without the puck his reactions and change of directions are slow..not a big shock having barely played the last 2 years and jumping in with everybody else in midseason shape.
I don't think his skating looks good. The pass to MaxPac in his first game back was absolutely unreal but I haven't seen too much in his game to make me think that he looks good.

Hopefully he turns it around but man, he looks a little bit lost out there.
