Markov is probably my favorite player, or at least he was when he was playing.
And I'm not bashing Emelin. People were actually bashing Campoli for exemple this year, but he still had a better season than Emelin. And I also really liked him at first because of the hits, but he doesn't bring much of anything besides those hits, including grit and defensive play.
And I can see some upside, since he had some good moments this year, but the more icetime he got, the weaker was our defense. To the point that at the end of the season, they started giving his icetime to Frederic St-Denis, who is no Larry Robinson, and it stabilized our defense a lot.
Our D will probably suck again next year, so him, Weber and St-Denis will fight for a roster spot, but one of them will have to step up his game, or we'll miss the playoffs again.
