Tinordi, Nathan, Ellis, and others will determine how much we improve
Do you really believe these two following statements?
Markov needs more time before I say anything of that notion. Missing over 100 games and being placed back in the lineup isn't exactly the easiest thing.
Kaberle has been given the roughest ride from the Montreal media it's incredible. It was only last year, February 2011 where Kaberle was traded for a 1st round pick and a player picked in the first round. He then goes on to win the Stanley Cup. This year he signs a contract, 4.5 is a little much and 3 years is a little long but as a UFA these type of things happen. He was positively dreadful with Carolina. The team sucked and so did he. Since being traded to Montreal, he continued a pace very similar to that of what he was doing in Toronto and was traded for essentially 2 first round picks.
Having both Markov and Kaberle in the same line up may be detrimental considering if Markov doesn't find his step he will be the exact same player Kaberle is.
None the less, I can not say you are wrong about Markov that we will have to wait and see. The fact of the matter is the Kaberle trade was a bad business trade, but he didn't under achieve as a hab this year.
